I've spent this week enjoying my home and my family. Sleeping with my baby and playing with my daughter. Chatting with my husband and watching movies. Eating candy and making cookies. Many of those things I can't do very often because I'm busy running the house and working, but this week Mr. Danita and I decided it was only for us. So I've been thinking and cleaning too. I think the end of the year it's the perfect time to get rid of the things that have been accumulating during all the months that passed, to make space for new things to come to our lives. Slowly, I've been getting rid of many things that I don't longer want or need. Room by room I've been meticulously cleaning and sorting, there are still lots to do but I take advantage of the little free time that I have to do this.
It may be silly for some that I spend my free time cleaning and organizing... but for me it's very important for my mental health and for my creativity. There was chaos in my home! With the baby and my daughter and the Holidays and the visitors this house slowly became a mess and I'm fixing it.
I started with the kitchen and followed with the family room... and now it's time to organize the studio! There are still a lot to do but at least I can walk around the room again... and I feel like painting again! (A feeling that sadly I had lost in the last few weeks).
While many will be in parties today celebrating the new year, I will be at home with my family watching a movie or playing Wii... no party hats this year and no special dinner... but with a sense of balance that I thought was gone.
My wish for you this new year is that it's full of health, peace, happiness and prosperity.
