Just let me mention that I felt wonderful after keeping my promise and meditating for 15 minutes yesterday. I don't for which reason it was, keeping the promise or the meditation. Probably both. I do know that I feel I can trust myself a bit more now.
Today was a day about decluttering. I had a very busy day and did not get the chance to declutter my entire bedroom like I wanted to. I cleaned a smaller portion of it, and promised to do a complete clutter clean-out on Friday.
As I was cleaning I realized that I had let my room get messy and clutttered because that is how my life is at the moment. I am busy with other things, and my room is suffering because of it. I have also been very stressed. I noticed how relaxed I was while I cleaned my room. It is rare that I am relaxed while cleaning because I usually have my dad (a cleaning nazi) there yelling at us the entire time. My favorite time to clean is when I am home by myself. I put on my music and sing out loud while dancing with the broom. It is so much fun.
S0 even though there is still some clutter in my room, it feels much more comfortable now. Hopefully I can convince my dad and sister to leave the house for a couple hours on Friday so I can do a really good cleaning job on the rest of the house.
