I'm so inspired today! Since posting yesterday about My Word of Intention for 2010, I discovered some wonderful things.
Ask and you shall receive ... I said I wanted to get rid of the clutter in my living room to create more space to make art everyday. Turns out, there's a blogger who wants the same thing and started a movement amongst other blogger's who want to, "Reduce Clutter and Create Space." Please click that link to learn more about it.
Barb, from The Craft Therapy blog, says we should ask ourselves, "Is this useful and will I use it? Does it bring me joy?" If the answer is no - then get rid of it. Give it away to someone on FreeCycle on yahoo.com, give it to Goodwill, Salvation Army, Am-Vets or throw it away. Sounds simple enough. This is the year of less is more for me! I will become an organized person.
I will make room for the things I want. I will be able to make art every day. Making art makes me happy. It makes me feel joy like I've never felt before. It allows me to express myself in ways I didn't know were possible.
I want to be the butterfly, instead of a catepillar. That's how ugly it feels. I want to grow and bloom like a flower in the sun.
William Morris said,"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." Words to live by in 2010.

That shows a world I'd like to live in and I want to focus on THAT rather than dwell on all the negative things in life! Don't get left behind! Your thoughts can change your life.
