One of the goals that I focused on last week was to clean out my closet. I love how much better I feel when my things are organized and uncluttered! It had been a while since I had last been through my closet, and it was starting to drive me nuts! I couldn’t put it off any longer!
I pulled out all of my scarves. My Beloved brought home several of them from deployments in Afghanistan, and there are others that I have from Russia. I would never get rid of my keepsakes, but I did find several of them to take out of rotation. I still have a large collection, but they are pared down to ones that I really love.
I’m still looking for way to store them. It’s the very last piece to my closet organization goal. Do you have any suggestions? I’ve been looking at Pinterest for hints – but I would love hear your ideas! Do you have any practical solutions for keeping your scarves organized and handy to wear?
I come by my love of shoes naturally. My grandmother had closets full of beautiful shoes. I used to peek inside their boxes and daydream of having such pretty shoes when I grew up. I had a few pairs that were very worn out. I had some heels that I hadn’t worn in almost two years – since I first hurt my hip. It was time to let go!
To keep or not to keep? That is the question. I went through each pair and decided whether or not to keep, donate, or throw away… Can you guess what I did with this pair?
I am thrilled with my results! I have more room, less clutter, and now I have a better idea of what clothes I should look for when I go bargain hunting! My head feels clearer, the clothes were donated to a good cause, and I can finally breathe an uncluttered sigh of relief when I get dressed each day. Thank you so much for going through this with me!
I am overwhelmed by the support that y’all have given me! I LOVE hearing about how you are joining me in taking better care of yourselves! We can’t continue to put ourselves on the back burner. I used to think that it would be selfish to take a little time for myself – I’m a busy wife and mother. “I don’t have time to take care of myself.” That’s what I used to say. I’m finding out by intentionally making this list every week, and sharing it with you, that I need to make the time for myself. It’s when I’m rested, hydrated, and feeling good about myself that I can actually be a better wife, mother, and friend. Everyone wins when I take just a little time for me…and I promise that it will be the same for you.
I’m wondering if anyone would be interested in sharing your goals and stories with us? I have been thinking about ways that we can support and encourage each other as care for ourselves like we care for those that we love around us. Would anyone be interested in linking up posts on how you’re tackling your personal goals? If you’re not a blogger, would anyone be interested in sharing comments, pictures, or stories? Y’all have been such an inspiration to me – and I would love it if we could continue to inspire and encourage each other!
I can’t wait to get started on my list – and I am excited to hear how you are taking care of yourselves this week! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. I love to hear how you are doing, friends!
Let’s take better care of ourselves this week – together!
