I posted this thought on facebook. "while going through some travel souvenir's i discovered something wonderful. i was once organized, careful, and took my time to prepare. all were labeled, neatly, and safely wrapped. it was like going through an archaeological dig and discovering another human society. except, the human was me." I was so surprised at what I say when I opened those boxes. I have hazy memories of being neat, thorough, cautious, picky. They are so far buried, that I don't even know how to get back to them. At least, I have evidence in my college art projects, and my resume, and my packing, that I was once a competent hit the ground running/at least upright.
I have been in my new no nest morning routine for 17 days now. I am loving it and it has made a world of difference in my home and my brain. I hope to make it to day 21, because, "they" say it doesn't become a habit until you do it 21 times.
