This is the beginning of the daisy; then she changed into...
I thought I would share this is the same flower, that was at the top of my blog, my banner. It is a gerbera daisy...I am amazed and how it started out green n' purple and then transformed to this...
I was thinking of the word change and the courage it takes to transform, morph, turn from a caterpillar to a butterfly.(sorry, no butterfly photos, yet) I think a lot of C words are altering: change, commitment, courage, cause, conflict, challenge and college. I am sure there are more...
Then I think of these words, can, could, and call.
I think of how a habit, whether good or bad, takes 21 days to form. Then I hear the song, "....a change will do you good"~Sheryl Crowe Not all changes are good, just ask military kids that have to leave their friends and move frequently.
I have struggled with my posts, lately. I had a health issue, that caused me to withdraw a bit. I lost my voice, so I turned to my camera to post beautiful things, trying to be positive. The matter is resolved...I'm good~
My horoscope for this week, says I need to have an initiation ceremony, a great C word, unless they go on to long and it is humid. A ceremony to start anew; I kind of like that idea. I need to exercise more, clean the clutter from the cobwebs of my mind. No, more like the attic. It is a challenge for me to throw things away. I will give to children, donate books, CHKD has a lot of toys and clothing, my children out grew. I believe in passing it on, if the quality is good. (I have done this many times, but I know there is more tucked away in boxes, concealed in corners and closets).
Being a military spouse, has for the most part, kept me from being a clutterbug. My Mom is a pack rat; hasn't moved for 45 yrs. We moved every 3 yrs sometimes less. When the orders come from the command, your household goods are weighed. Your rank determines how much weight you can have. Crazy right! We have lived here the longest, going on 8yrs. We love the community and the rural area. We live in the country, but can be in the city in 20 minutes. Larger cities are forty-five minutes-l hour away. Doable~
I will initiate myself with a mind map ceremony. I will cut out visual pics to symbolize changes I want to make. Then commit to these. I need more cardio, also work my core, helps the back. Then I need to declutter my house. That is a D word...now, I think of Don. He likes everything in it's place. We need more places... More D words come to mind: dread, disorder, dispose, discipline and deadline. I will just have to DO it~
Check our Lee of Tossing it Out; He is going to post about cleaning and clutter. He is calling it "Tossing it out Tuesday" very clever!
