Today I took the first step towards simplifying my life...and I'm starting in the closet. I bought some inexpensive boxes (in black) and magazine files (in wine/medallion). Next I'm going to go through every inch of my closet and am either going throw it, file it, or organize it. I have a serious mess starting to spill out of the confines of my little office closet and it's starting to seep into the rest of my life as well. In terms of clearing the mind, my closet is a good place to start. From there, I might very well take on the rest of my office as well. That's my goal, anyhow! And in the end, I'll award myself to some long awaited color (have you guessed that the boxes are a form of self-bribery as well?). These walls are white, white, white and have been getting on my nerves for too long. Since I'm renting, I can't paint...but I CAN get creative! I'll let you know what I come up with when I get there.
In the meantime...it's just me and the closet.
"Be Brave" tip o' the day: You gotta start somewhere!

a la writing retreat!
