The Small Victories
I started sorting my clothes enough to actually use them (they had mostly been on a chair in one big pile). The goal was to sort my clothes enough for temporary use (somewhat accomplished) and get started on my DVDs this weekend (not so much accomplished). I don’t consider any of this part of my KonMari tidy, but at least I am getting prepared.
I didn’t work the whole weekend! I worked some of it, but not all of it.
These are small victories, yes, but victories all the same. In this war, I will celebrate them.
Just Keep Swimming & Finding Underwear
Work seemed like it was going to be good for a whole week, but those dreams were destroyed on Friday afternoon. Sometimes I think the company is spying on me, and they plan their deadlines around my schedule. And I do mean in the worst way. As soon as I actually physically took steps to get started on my tidy and other work at my house, thinking that at least the next week would be slow enough for me to get STARTED on things, everything changed at work. Often I think this is the universe trying to tell me something. But in the end I know the universe has better things to do than talk to me. Plus, I have never known anyone that had things at their job line up conveniently with things in their personal life. It’s a common struggle for everyone. As Dori (Finding Nemo) says, “Just keep swimming.” Right how I happen to be swimming through some garbage. But I will never be here again. The KonMarie Method gives me this amount of hope. My house may have issues, I might be busy at work, but I will never again dig through a pile of mediocre clothes to find my underwear.
