Today was a great day. I woke up saying to myself, "Enough is enough. Today is the day." I was referring to my never ending pile of clutter and my 1/4 completed DIY projects. So today, I finally organized the top shelf of my closet, did my laundry, hung my curtains, and put my Kevin O'Keith print on the wall. Both are hanging on faith and a prayer so please keep them in your high thoughts! :-) At the days end, I am feeling accomplished.
I forget how important it is to maintain a sacred living space with scents, sights, and sounds that I find pleasing. I grew up in a cluttered home and it takes extreme effort for me to not accumulate more of it. I now know that clutter is usually an outward expression of inward distress. When I'm emotionally upset or spiritually restless, I'm less likely to put things away. Like I mentioned in my last blog, I still have issues, I just cope better these days. So this morning, I put on energizing music, lit an orange vanilla scented candle, opened the window, and got to work.
Now, as I look around my space and sip on a glass of Malbec from Argentina I feel sensual and complete. See, I'm 30 years young. Now mind you, I am not one of those women that lament growing. In fact, I was quite excited. My 20s were crazy. So I look to my 30s and beyond to finally find some peace. Half way through the first year of my 30s I feel myself growing in wisdom. It is an amazing feeling to connect with Spirit and gain understanding. I heard from the Divine today as I went about my housework. Spirit gave me the answer to a question I've been stumped on for over a year now. The grown woman in me receives and plans to act accordingly on this new found knowledge. See, evolving is what makes me feel most alive. Thinking differently. Moving differently. Remembering that knowledge is not power.
The proper application of knowledge is what separates the girls from the Queens.
