I don't remember who recommended this book, but I saw it somewhere and I thought to myself. Oh a book for me! I love to tidy up and declutter things. I agree with the premise of the book, if your house is in order you will be able to enjoy your life. I mean that makes sense...if everything is put away you will not have to clean. There were a few quotes in the book that hit home with me.
"People cannot change their habits without first changing their way of thinking!"
This is something I have been working on for the past year or two, I am trying to change my eating habits and the way I think about food. I have always been someone who loves sweets and that is just one of many factors that make me sick. So I need to change my habits and find new things that I enjoy. I also need to get in the habit of eating for nutrition and not enjoyment.
What do I want most in my house?????
A relaxing calm place where my adult children can come home and enjoy time with their mom and dad and my grand baby can play with grandma and grandpa.
The space I live in is graced only with those things that speak to my heart.....What sparks JOY in your heart?
This is something I am definitely working on, as my husband and I get older I don't want a lot of junk around the house. We hope some day to move to a smaller house and we will need to downsize. I am trying to keep things that I enjoy and love to see around the house. Structure to Tidying
