Soul Coaching Day 6- late

I know it's late. The people I babysit for decided they needed me an hour earlier than expected. This was just as I went to post how the day went. By the time they came to pick him up I was so tired all I could think about was meditating and bed. Here it is though!

I tried to tell myself the affirmation when my dad took me to practice driving in Keene. When I really needed to remember it though, I couldn't. I was scared by the traffic and upset by my dad. He really isn't the most helpful person. I think I need to find someone new to practice driving with.

The first thing I did in the morning was clean out old computer files. It felt good to have those organized, especially since I spend so much time on my computer. It is necessary for my school work and my blog. I need it to last me well into college, so I have to take care of it.

I cleaned my entire bedroom of clutter! Every drawer, all the shelves, even under my bed and in my hope chest. The hope chest was the hardest to clean out. That was where the real clutter was. It was mostly papers, birthday cards, and letters. I even had things from over five years ago. I did it and my room feels wonderful now.

I made time to sit down and read. I read the first two chapters in one of my books. I was so glad to get the chance to do that. Hopefully I will get to read a little bit more this morning before I have to babysit again.


  1. Tori, it sounds like you're doing amazingly well! That's a lot of clearing and decluttering you have done: material and cyber. Excellent! And got to read? You're doing better than I am.

    I also wanted to say Tori that in the last 13 years I have moved 9 times. It's hard to put down roots, I know. The good news is you can take the spirit of home with you wherever you go.

  2. I'm happy that you're diving into this journey so wonderfully, Tori!

    Thanks for your words of support, I hate fgeeling that way, but I have to be honest about myself at the same time!

    I also want you to know that you're the one who won the kitty keyring, congrats!

    Kisses from Nydia.

  3. Me again! Seems like almost everybody is a bit late,so don't get worried about it. You're commited to the journey and doing greatly! The power of decluttering is really amazing, you feel the energy running freely after a good clean-up! Great job, Tori.
    When you pas this drving test, whenever it is, you'll feel so well, yo'll forget if your dad was a prick, if you were stressed, because you'll be free. Relax, breath!
