As I have matured and become more comfortable in my skin, I have learnt to be brutally honest with myself, even to acknowledge my weaknesses and shortcomings. Unfortunately, with that said, this revelation has not spilled over to every area of my life. OCD is the one area in my life where I am most relaxed and honest with myself. We lived in the UK for 15 years prior to returning to SA.
I raised 3 children single handily and was stuck in the rut of cleaning and tidying up after the children all day and every day. It dawned on me that there is more to life. It is far nicer to take time out, go for a walk and stop to smell the roses. I tried to find a balance between what must be done and to experience peaceful, inspirational pleasures in life. Life is stressful enough without the added burdens.
I have found the best time for me to declutter and re-organise both my life and my household is at the beginning of Summer. The coming of Summer symbolises new beginnings. It signifies, new thoughts, new inspirations and a total change of attitude. I’m sure that by now you have realised that Summer is my most favourite season in the year.
Let’s start making some changes in the bedroom and slowly work our way through the entire house. Follow me this month for weekly ideas.
