‘Ahem….do you come here often?’
She coughs again.
‘I used to, then I started doing this Happiness Project, then sort of lost my way a bit and haven’t been here for a while’
Not entirely sure what happened back then but I sort of haven’t been here for ages! Sorry!
Did you miss me?
No, don’t answer that!
I’m still listening to more music, trying to get to bed earlier but not really drinking enough water – it’s too cold for water anyway, need a good cuppa in this weather!
This Happiness Project still has me thinking a lot about happiness, I feel like there are two broad approaches to happiness depending on your disposition. One is to have everything under control, your house clutter free, every thing very well organised. The other is to just completely let go and embrace the unpredictability of life.
This is where I get stuck! I know that having two small children in the house who have an inate ability to find the one thing they are not allowed to play with even if you think you have put it far enough out of their reach, or to completely tear a room apart within minutes of entering it, or get sticky fingers and crumbs everywhere really doesn’t help with the control thing. And, unfortunately I am no good at the embracing thing.
I really need to get back to the little things and try to do one per week to help in an area of control or embrace. So, to that end this is de-clutter week! A week to gain more control over my house. I must admit I have been trying to declutter for the past goodness-knows-how-long so I don’t hold out much hope but if I can get at least a few bags of stuff out of this house then I am sure I will feel much better!
How are you feeling this week? Do you need to do a bit of a de-clutter?
Why not join me and let me know how you get on.
It’s nice to be back,
