Busyness is a robber most time. It takes away from a chance to sit and reflect or read a good book or be quiet and hear from The Lord.
I feel each of these are an important process in my life. I’m not a robot that can keep going until my energizer batteries run out. I need to reflect on things going on in my life-the good, bad and ugly. Those things need to be sorted out so corrections can be implemented or maybe some things eliminated. Rest is another important factor. A tired mind is a terrible mind and sound decisions can’t be made.
Quiet time is when I shut down everything and just be. In that time of quietness is when I can hear The Lord clearly. I can get clarity in the. Direction I need to go.
Quality time is when I take care of things that are important to my well-being. A relaxing massage. Eases then tension and brings repair to my body. Getting a manicure and pedicure makes my fingers and toes beautiful artwork to gaze at and smile.
I’m selfish with my quality, quiet because it makes a more together me.
I have created a new definition for clutter. Clutter is an accumulation of things out-of-place and order that disrupts peace, tranquility and creativity.
Busyness has a way of taking life from a cool, calm and collected state. Organization goes out the door because your home turns into a hotel room. You sleep there, get up and go and return at the end of the day continuing to clutter.
Mail, papers and clothes become lost-they can’t find their homes. As a result of that piles of clutter appear all over the place. They grow and grow and grow some more. It makes you think the next step is a starring role on the hoarders’ show.
In order to not be the hoarders’ star, clutter has to be evicted. Before the eviction notice can be delivered the busy schedule needs to be revisited and reworked. Do all those things need to be done. Will they make you or break you? What are the top three things you want to do well? Pick them and eliminate everything else. Next step is devise a plan. Get help or do it yourself.
Clutter I want to speak to you. Your time is short in my home. You are a squatter and you have to go. So pack your bags and hit the door. You are evicted.
