Mamavation Monday: Baby Steps Work!

I was going to post something super educational as my picture for this week...right up until I saw this. It makes me wonder if this is a serious issue around this country. Do people randomly urinate and deficate in public so much that we need signs? Or is this like hot McDonalds coffee and it was just this one person, this one time? Granted, a couple of summers ago, I had to ask my neighbor to ask their friend to stop peeing on the side of their house (the back door was mere feet away, I kid you not) because I was getting tired of looking out the window and seeing it. I guess you just never know, huh?

Anyway, enough about public toileting and on to something far more fun and least for me! Remember how we talked about baby steps last week and I showed you the before picture of my weekly project? I have an after picture! I warn you that it kind of sucks because my camera batteries died and I had to use my phone, but it's a picture! Ready? Here goes....

Ta da! It actually looks even better now. The clear space under holds my potting soil bucket, the lawnmower gas can and the shop vac. All super accessible and not buried under mounds of stuff! I've had people coming out from Freecycle for the past few days and things are finding new homes. And you know what? It feels good! It feels good to be shedding physical weight from this home. It feels good to watch the garbage go and the things left behind are only things we love and use.

Similarly, I know it's going to be a great feeling when I start shedding the food garbage from this house and start bringing in only what my body needs and loves. It's going to feel great when my body starts shedding the unneeded and unwanted garbage (weight) from itself. Just like it took baby steps to create that happy space in my barn/garage, it's going to take baby steps to get healthy. It's ok because I can do it!

My next project is to get my kitchen back in useable order. Each day this week, I'll take baby steps to get it functional and beautiful. Before we know it, it's going to be another happy space that makes us smile to walk into it!



It looks great, very organized!!!!!


That sign cracked me up. Isn't it Jeff Foxworthy that has a whole bit on signs that exist because SOMEONE did the very thing they're warning us not to do? :)
