When I first read this prompt, I wanted to say “EVERYTHING! LIFE! MY WHOLE WORLD!” but then I reflected a little and realized this was such a huge request and that I was overreaching. That’s one of my faults. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl sometimes – when I want to make changes, I want to make a BUNCH of them and I want to make them NOW. So I write myself out a schedule (are there any creative types out there who are good at following schedules? I’m sure not one of them!) and I make LONG lists. Then one of two things happens – I wake up in the morning and completely forget to even look at my lists and just fall into the same old same old or I look at the list, get overwhelmed, and abandon it. Recently, I’ve come to the realization that I need to start with baby steps. Sure I can make a global list of things I want to do/to change/to move forward with but then I need to pick only one or two at a time to work on. So, taking a step back and reexamining this question, I want to narrow my focus. What I wish to make progress on is a clearing out of all the clutter and things that I don’t need or want anymore. I want to relieve myself of some of my material possessions because by doing that I will also relieve myself of the clutter in my mind that comes from having too many things to care for and it will set a clear stage for whatever I decide to do next.
