Today is as my title reads.
A little reflecting, a little purging…
Today I’ve been very reflective about myself and my well-being. I feel as though my mind has become sharp again as the warm weather moves in. I think better under sunshine conditions. This winter in particular has turned my mind and happiness gray, so it’s lovely to defrost myself.
I’ve been contemplating my ability to replicate. What I mean by this is, I can duplicate what I see and feel because I am so detail-oriented. For instance, I can give a killer massage to my fiancee’ because I paid attention to the masseuse when I received my five-minute back massage. I constructed my first chalk painting based on the composition of another (it was a larger replica of an original), because I noticed every curve and detail…but when have I taken time to create something of my own accord? Am I too nervous? Too cautious? Too exposed?
I fear I am becoming a duplicate. I need to branch out and be my own example.
Today was also a day I conquered the purging of things.
My fiancee’ and I are currently looking for a place of our own… I find myself SO ready for this move that I have begun sorting through all belonging nooks and purging what is no longer needed.
I have always been the sentimental type, towards inanimate objects too. Purging has never been an easy thing-actually, it was NEVER a “thing” in my life. NEVER did I do it willingly. I think I am moving in a different direction of my life, a grown-up world where I am learning to let go of things less important than moments before me.
At the end of the purging, I am left feeling clean and refreshed…
and my areas are neatly sorted, hold all that I want and need, and are ready for a move any moment now!
All directions of reflection and purging are taking me to new heights. I can feel it.
Today was a good day.
