If you are a regular reader, you may have noticed that I've not been a regular writer lately. I've been completely swamped by the demands of the beginning of school, and totally overwhelmed by life in general.
My new mantra for the 2009-2010 school year is: SIMPLIFY. I'm hoping that, in simplifying my life, I will have more freedom, more time, and more fun. I want to enjoy what I enjoy, do what I have to do, and let go of as much of the rest as possible.
For example, I have 532 blogs in my Google Reader, or I did until yesterday, when I dumped them all and started all over again. I now have 42. I am letting go of my fear that I will miss something if I don't read every new blog post under the sun. If there is something that I am supposed to know, the Universe will get it to me somehow. I want to savor reading my favorite blogs again, instead of racing through them to get through the list!
This sounds great, but, I am aware that with three children under the age of ten and my own tendencies towards hoarding and disorganization, it will not be easy going. All I can do is try, right? Then again, we all know what Yoda has to say about that...
In this spirit, I will doing a Post #413 Mystery Giveaway, in which I will de-stash and reward a lovely reader at the same time!
