This morning I decided I really need to spend some time in reflection and evaluation of multiple areas of my life. What I want to do. What I need to do. Just looking at those two sentences the “need” should be before the “want”. There are 150.10 gazillion things that I should be doing right now, but I’m writing this instead. Why?
Well, because I read this article, http:// http://www.livingwellspendingless.com/2012/02/15/why-i-make-my-bed-10-reasons-i-keep-my-house-clean/, which only served to reinforce the need for re-evaluation and then I saw the pink flamingos. In my neighbors yard.
How on God’s green (or in my case still white) earth did pink flamingos have an effect? Spring. Renewal. Rebirth. Anew. Didn’t Jesus talk about old things passing away making all things new? Well, for me that leads to Spring…and newness of life. Clean. Crisp. Refreshing.
After the last year, I am fully open to renewal.
This is why evaluation and revamping are needed. Wanted. Nearly required.
Does this insight into how my brain spiderwebs around make you nervous? I hope not. But I have to confess, I roll my eyes at myself sometimes in how “A” will lead to “B” in my brain. 🙂
Why am I sharing all of this? Honestly, mostly for myself. Sorry, thats probably selfish of me and I apologize for that. I need my own personal accountability in this. Truth be told, but what better way than publicly, globally public! It gives you permission to knock on my door (or a comment, or note) to say, “how’s it going? Progress report. Or whatever clever way you decide to say, “hey woman”! 🙂
I don’t believe for one minute that the process will be pretty, or full of sunshine and roses, but I do believe it will be worth it.
Do you want to join me or be a cheerleader? I welcome both.
Now, ready? Begin.
