I am on a roll!
I grabbed a box last night, and added stuff to it from my kitchen. It was so freeing. It was good for the soul. The box is full and is ready for a trip to the Goodwill.
I am also having to write down everything I want to accomplish because my mind keeps darting around with all the possibilities. Whoa, Nellie. One thing at a time. (When I was a child, my dad called his truck Nellie and he would say things like “Whoa, Nellie” when we were riding in it.)
I am like most people. I like instant gratification. I like that right now my closet and drawers are not over run with clothes. Less clothes mean less time standing in front of my closet wondering what in the world am I going to wear that day. I like that after last night, my kitchen is less cluttered. My cabinets are not crammed full.
It is just so inspirational and motivating.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. –Aristotle
Like the Pastor said Sunday at the church we visited Sunday, and I am paraphrasing…
Whatever you do, do it in excellence. If you work at Subway, then you spread that mayonnaise for the glory of God!
Disclaimer: Please note that the yard you see in the photograph is not actually my yard. It is a lot that my father-in-law bought, and my husband is in the process of tearing down the old house that sits on the lot. It was built in 1900 and in awful shape. Besides, what country boy wouldn’t like tearing down an old house?
