Our topic in today’s challenge is to STATE A HABIT YOU ARE REPLACING AND THE NEW ONE THAT WILL SERVE YOU.

I’m happy about today’s topic because I’ve already started working on this one.  I have become a collector… and I’m not talking about comic books, stamps or any other theme specific memorabilia.  I just collect things that have some meaning to me.

For example, Architectural Digest magazines.  Love them!

The problem is, they have really started to clog up my life and weigh me down.   They just don’t serve me anymore.

 

I’m proud to say I’ve already given away all of my magazines…  a step in the right direction!

I want to be FREE to TRAVEL  and spend more time adventuring, instead of being tied down to things & stuff!   I want to lighten my load as much as possible BECAUSE by this time next year, I plan to be somewhere else.  Somewhere warmer and than here… somewhere less cold and less white.

 

The only way I am going to achieve this is by clearing the clutter and getting rid of ’stuff’.   My goal is to be Stuff-Free by mid-April.  That way, when an awesome opportunity steps in front of me, I’ll be able to grab it.

 

This goes for people too.  I have been a collector of friends…  even some people who don’t really get me.  It’s taken a while, but I finally feel that ‘most’ of my friends (and some of my family) respect my desires and are nothing but encouraging.  They love me enough to say ‘follow your heart’, make your dreams happen!

 

Several years ago I watched a cute and quirky little movie called Crazy in Alabama, starring Melanie Griffith. There was one line in it, that struck me so hard that I could have fallen over.  It’s stayed with me all these years and I love to quote it.

 

“All I know if you’ve only got one life….  You can’t sit around waiting for your next life to start!”

 

Brilliant!

See you tomorrow 🙂
