The first prompt is Making Way, and she suggests that we do the following (paraphrased):
- Clean the house physically.
- Clean the house magically.
- Revamp schedules so that time spent is used to the best advantage, whatever that means for each person right now.
- Deal with the big bad baggage that is holding us back.
What I've done at this point:
- I live with housemates. My house is not spotless, but it's clean enough that I would be okay having my grandmother over, and that's good enough for me.
- We have a very well-warded home, and also we are ALWAYS raising positive energy and keeping things flowing. My house is not magically spotless, but it is definitely clean.
- Schedule is in progress as I look for balance between work and the rest of it.
- Baggage. This is the big one right now, and the one I am really putting up a fight about. My baggage is financial debt, and a tendency to hold on to patterns and people long beyond the point where they become bad for me. This baggage has a physical component. There are four bins of paperwork, old letters, pay stubs, and bric-a-brac that goes back to high school. It's been re-boxed several times, combined and hidden away effectively, but these bins are the things I have refused to de-clutter the past nine times I've moved. I have cleared old clothes and books and blankets and games, no matter how hard it's been, but these boxes just get added to and ignored. So, that's my next project. I am moving in March, and by the end of January these bins must be done. I have a scanner at my disposal, and figure that I legitimately have about one container's worth of stuff that should be organized and kept in paper form. So that's the plan.Ugh.
