Already Wednesday

Wow, time is flying, which is great! I have been super busy. Over the weekend I attended the Yoga Journal conference which was fabulous. Monday, I took the day off to spend with Sara. Our plan was to go to the deYoung Museum, but they are closed on Monday's - so instead we went shoe shopping and then to Cafe Gratitude where we sat, ate and talked for 3 hours! It was such a wonderful day. I am so blessed to have such an inspirational person in my life like Sara. She has totally inspired me to get rid of the past that I am holding on to at home (clothing, shoes, books and other stuff that is clogging up my life). I do agree that it is the one thing that is holding me back at home. She gave me some tips about where to sell things, etc. and told me that the process will not happen tear free. It is hard, but will prepare me as we get closer to the date we get the call that we have been matched with a baby. When we get the call I don't want my all of my energy to be on cleaning and organizing before we can travel to Vietnam to pick her up, I want to focus on spending quality time with my husband and decorating her space together. It is already going to be stressful, exciting and crazy, I don't need to add to it so I am trying to be proactive and start the purging now. I have basically sat down and created a list of shoes I know I want to keep - all the rest are going, I did the same with clothing. I figure if I have forgotten about them, there is a reason and they are just taking up space. I have downsized a lot over the last year, but need to do more and let's face it, how often am I wearing my snakeskin strappy heals? I think someone else would enjoy them more than I am at this point in my life. I got home Monday evening feeling rejuvenated, happy and looking forward to the upcoming year, which has been a little scary in the back of my mind. I just needed a little positivity and perspective and Sara always provides that.
