The highs and lows of life..Oh the highs of life, if they could just keep us there. Keep us in the glory and the happy and the joy of what’s going on around us and stay in a state of excitement and a spirit of amazing.
But it doesn’t always work that way. Because we’re in the world, we have emotions that range from happy to sad, from joy to anger, from bliss to chaos. And in the middle of them changing, we have to be able to manage what is going on in and around us. To not get overwhelmed when things don’t go the way we planned or thought or wanted or intended.
But to pull ourselves up and out and move on in a new way, take a new step, declare a new thought and make a change. Then we can have it be different again.
I just moved to a new state 6 months ago and am feeling the high of the NEWNESS of my life dissipate. I’m feeling myself getting grounded and more comfortable in this place. I’m feeling bliss take over the excitement. When I got here, everything was new and fun and I was ready to get involved. Well now that I’m here and I’m involved….it’s the same thing over and over again. It’s up to me to create the joy in the SAMENESS that I’ve created in my new home with my new friends, at my new job.
I can’t expect every day to be a day at the beach with a drink in my hand with an umbrella sticking out of it, right? It snows, It rains, I sleep in. I check off my to-do list one day and the next day, I don’t. The highs and lows come and go and I’m okay with it.
Your God girl
Did you know there’s a connection between the ‘condition of your living space & your surrounding environment’ WITH ‘your mood & your stress level’? The connection happens unconsciously. You may not even realize WHAT it is that has you feeling OFF. A cluttered environment saps your energy, robs your creative flow, sucks out your positive attitude & steals your precious time. It slows down your productivity & outcomes and fills your mind with emptiness. And you ask “How’d THAT happen?’
Your living conditions could very well be the culprit to your boredom, upset, complacency, etc.
Living in, working in or just being in physical chaos… it changes your mood ** SNAP ** like that !
You don’t wake up and say, ‘my day is going to be havoc today’…it just happens. As you go about your morning… you find yourself asking…. ‘Where are my keys?’ ‘What did I do with that letter?’ ‘Where is Johnny’s other sneaker?’ And before you know it, you’re behind schedule, talking to yourself and walking around in circles. You woke up in a good mood, ready to take on the day and ** SNAP ** like that you’re going down the rabbit hole.
And Sometimes it’s a lot harder to deal with the negative mood than the actual task of organizing your space. BUT the chaotic space will keep you there and make it even harder. Do you feel overwhelmed, burdened and stuck? If you can step out and start with one small drawer, one closet, one counter….. it very well could – if you let it – snowball you into another and another and another. And the next thing you know, you’re space is inviting, it flows better, and you’re happy. Allow clarity to replace clutter. Create a place for everything and put everything in it’s place Guess what…that’s better than half the battle…..it demolishes the battle. You find things in a ** SNAP **.
It’s time to get back on track with a more efficient, harmonious space AND the next thing you know… you have a more efficient, harmonious life!
Your God Girl,
Did you know there’s a connection between the condition of your living space & surrounding environment AND your mood, productivity, creativity and stress level? A cluttered environment saps your energy and robs you of a creative flow, positive outcomes & precious time. Living in, or working with, physical or mental chaos… can change your mood like *SNAP* that! And sometimes it’s a lot harder to deal with THAT than the actual task of organizing it all. The connection happens unconsciously. You don’t wake up and say, ‘my day is going to be havoc today’…it just happens. As you go about your morning you find yourself asking…. ‘Where are my keys?’ ‘What did I do with that letter?’ ‘Where is Johnny’s other sneaker?’ And then before you know it, you’re behind schedule, talking to yourself and walking around in circles.
When you’re always looking for things that should be at your fingertips, you spend too much important & precious time looking. Clarity replaces Clutter!! We live in a society which places many demands on our time. And one thing is for sure….we don’t have time to waste searching for that one thing we need before we can walk out the door, that one folder we need for the meeting or the school papers Suzi needs in her backpack before the bus gets here. If you create a place for everything and put everything in it’s place …that’s better than half the battle…..it demolishes the battle. You find things in a *SNAP*.
Whether it’s your office, kitchen, garage, playroom, kitchen cabinets, dresser drawers… whatever it is…. …. it’s time to get back on track with a more efficient, harmonious space AND the next thing you know… you have a more efficient, harmonious life!
Be aware of your condition and declutter what you can so today is a breeze.
Peace & Blessings,
I have always loved music. All kinds and in every form. I listen to all genres but currently my favorite genre is country. Specifically Eric Church. I have been an Eric Church groupie/junkie for quite some time but it has gotten really bad over the last year or so after having attended 2 of his concerts. I have been to numerous amounts of concerts and have never been to any like how the Eric Church concert made me feel. I am a member of the Church Choir and have too many shirts to mention as it’s borderline embarrassing. 🙂 No-we are NOT paid sponsors of Eric Church 😉
On our 30 day writing challenge I am suppose to list 10 songs that I am loving right now. And since I don’t want you to think we are paid sponsors of Eric Church I will list some outside of him as well 🙂
- Why Not Me-Eric Church-written for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting-watch this live performance!
- Greatest Love Story-Lanco
- Black-Dierks Bentley
- Body Like A Back Road-Sam Hunt
- You Broke Up With Me-Walker Hayes
- Love Your Love The Most-Eric Church
- Like Jesus Does-Eric Church
- Every Little Thing-Carly Pearce
- Jackson-Johnny Cash & June Carter
- I Drive Your Truck-Lee Brice
Music changes with my mood. But it is also one of the very few things that can almost instantly make me feel better. I am always up to listening to new artists or the unknowns.
Love to All-
