Seeing the Light

Mike & I have spent the day trying to rearrange the house in order to make room for our newest addition. We moved our bedroom to the smaller office, and are in the process of moving all the computer stuff, including the desk, bookcases, file cabinets & craft gear into the master bedroom, where half the room will be reserved for the crib & a small dresser. Of course, that means that the entire office is in my tiny living room right now, as we try to fit things into their new homes. Maybe it's my nesting instinct kicking in already, but I really hope to purge as much as I possibly can in order to feel less crowded. I think I'm going to try to sell a bunch of stuff, either on ebay or'll see how far I get.
The point is, there's just something to be said for cleaning up your life! Whether it be physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially, etc. Light just seems to shine through when there are no obstacles to block its path, and I feel as though I've been in the dark for a while with all my clutter! Of course, my mind is a bit cluttered since I'm off my meds, so I think that's manifesting itself in the rest of my life...but that's an entirely different story. For now, the house will hopefully be coming together tomorrow & I'll once again be able to see the Light!

Good for you!! Yeah -- David is always making fun of me with trying to DI stuff. After every birthday, Christmas...I grab a trash bag. You feel so much better after, though. How ya feeling?

Thanks for your reply on my blog BTW. It takes so much pressure off when you can think of it the way you described. Thanks, Amanda. I really needed that.
