I love this time of year – it always provides me with an impetus to look back on the year behind me and plan for the year ahead.
This year, you’ve seen some of my journey as I work toward creating a sustainable (for me) level of tidiness in my home. It’s one of many areas of my life in which I’m striving for improvement, and is probably the easiest area in which to quantify my success.
I think it’s only fitting that I spent some of my day today, on the last day of the year, cleaning my apartment. There are tasks small and large that have been left undone as I have worked an unusual schedule lately and traveled for the holidays. It gives me such energy to work toward and finish goals, and even something as simple as taking out all the trash and recycling makes me feel accomplished and makes my home feel lighter.
My plans for tomorrow also include cleaning my apartment, and let’s face it, there’s always more to do. I want to start the year the way I mean to carry on throughout it, so including cleaning on my list is important to me.
Here’s to the end of 2017 and to all that 2018 will bring us!
