What Do you Wish to Begin?


It's Wishcasting Wednesday and I have been so busy these last few weeks, the Wednesdays just feel like they are rolling by so quickly. Today, Jamie's prompt is what do you wish to begin?  I have so many things that I wish to begin. I have no trouble beginning. It is the finishing that I have issues with. What do I wish to finish...now that would be a long post. Maybe that question will be coming up soon!

I want to begin my online store. I want to begin painting for my next show. I want to begin a book. I want to begin a mixed media series. I want to begin.....There are a lot of things I want to begin, but I get stuck, and I have been realizing lately that my life is cluttered and arranged in piles all around me.

I want to begin organizing my life, organizing my dream. First, I need to break my addiction to paper...newpapers, magazines, books, snippets, clippings, and emphemera, numbers scribbled here and lists scribbled there, and don't even get me started on the receipts. With the help of my wonderful husband, I am seeing a new way. It just feels better when things are organized. Life flows smoothly.

So I wish to begin a major de-cluttering effort here. I know this is where I need to start in order to do all the other things I wish to begin...I mean, I really don't need the Organic Living magazine from 2007, do I?

  1. I'm with you on the decluttering. I also save articles, magazines, and misc. papers. I HAVE to start purging today! Good luck with all your projects. As Shari wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

  3. I *so* know what you mean about FINISHING things. I have so many projects in process, or the materials for projects, or the IDEAS for projects in my head, on scraps of paper, in my notebooks... it's sort of madness.

    I wish for you TONS of success with all your ventures. I hope you can get unstuck, uncluttered, and organized quickly and without much stress so you can FINISH working towards your dream!

    I wish you everything you wish for, and more!

    p.s. I tried to de-stash my magazine pile last week and could only get rid of about 25% of it. Yikes!

    Oh wonderful...Let Fly girl...reorder and keep going for that dream!!
    I have to admit that I have trouble getting rid of mags...ones I love and use. So I pull out the articles I like and add them to a file and keep them neat..and where I can find them. Takes a little time every quarter..but I don't have mag guilt anymore:)
    Namaste, Sarah

  9. I find that when I declutter my surroundings, my mind somehow gets decluttered in the process! Good luck with your decluttering venture!

    As Shari wishes for herself, so I do wish for her also!
