Here's the photo for today:
|Clearing my horizontal spaces square foot by square foot.|
Suffering from food poisoning the last couple of days... ugh. But today is better and I'm doing laundry and catching up on some things.
I wrote down these words as what I want to spend my time and energy on for this year:
- Creating Music
- Photos & Stories
- USA Road Trips
Other things need to receive less attention. Technology is getting too complex that the simplicity that it can provide doesn't. I upgraded my phone right at the end of December, and I love my Samsung Galaxy S4, but there's a lot of 'stuff' I don't want or need, and trying to get rid of it (or at least so I don't have to see it on my screen of apps) is taking too much time.
My weekend at the Keith Lancaster Praise & Harmony recording for "Everlasting God" was incredibly amazing and another bucket-list event for me. Singing at a higher level... giving our 'best fruits' for Him and aiming for our own personal best for the excellent result is so gratifying. I do that with Sweet Adelines all the time, which is why I love it... the challenge of doing better every time... raising the bar... I love that challenge. Travelling with the college group (26 hours in the van round trip) was incredibly fun, and I feel I know some people a lot better now, and that helps me feel more like a part of the group... though I am old enough to be most of their mothers... ha ha.
Clearing my spaces... I feel it in my bones that this is really & truly the year. I'm ready. "Will it fit in my tiny house?" is my question to ask myself... getting it digitalized if I need to... being secure in knowing (feeling) that what I have is enough, and letting go of unreal expectations as I'm trying to laser-beam focus on what is important. Health should probably be higher on the list, but the first 4 items: Spiritual, Relationships, Singing, Creating Music... these are where I want my energies to be focused, and that means cutting out a lot of the unessential.
