January Cure: Assignment #3



Does cleaning your house make you feel like this?  Then I would recommend Apartment Therapy's third January Cure assignment, 10 Mindful Minutes: Get a Fresh Perspective.
 
Now, when you first read it, you'll think, seriously?  Close your eyes, and in a quiet, meditative state,  imagine the room empty?  What's this hippie crap?  Listen people, this is what I've always done.  Now just because I envision it back together in way that looks and functions better doesn't mean it actually happens anytime soon.  What it does, is give you a goal.
 
 I kinda half-assed the assignment today because I've already done this for every room.  Well, almost every room.  My basement...I can't think straight when I'm down there because there's so much crap.  My office/art room I can't seem to figure out what would work.  In terms of the rest of the house, doing this has given me a vision that I'm slowly putting together.  I haven't run out and bought anything, I'm waiting to find the perfect pieces on Craigslist, Freecycle or at an estate sale, but I know those pieces are out there. 

BTW I'm going to have to buy my own flowers, since my usually very sweet and romantic Hubby has completely ignored my request....although, he did remember to pick up lunch meat, bread and honey, so I guess that's something...
