So, here’s yet another best thing about ReJanimate – you do something every day. Yeah, I know, that’s kind of the point, but I realised today that some of my projects have had the side effect of creating more mess or disorder somewhere else (why does this happen? All things tend to entropy.)
But instead of looking at this mess and being all OH WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE MY LIFE IS BUT A VORTEX OF DISARRAY AND DESPAIR I can be all Zen about it. Because – ah, ahhhh – I know, for a fact I will be doing something tomorrow. I don’t just intend to do something tomorrow, but have in fact committed to it.
And so I didn’t walk into the spare room, take one look at the work to do in there and run out screaming, I just took some of it as today’s job. And the more often I do this, the easier each job gets, as I begin to find I know exactly where some things go, because I sorted that out some days ago. I don’t have wrapping paper in four places in the house, or three boxes of stationery, or, or…and what’s yet to come will be easier still.
It’s paying off!
Today, then, I went through the spare room wardrobe, I emptied two boxes of random crap, I got another bag to take to school, I found a bag of make up to ReJanimate and I tidied my sewing box:
January 14th: reJanimated sewing box.
