I made a list of all the little things I want to get done in an attempt to de-clutter my life and get it organized. I'm always talking about how I need to do cleaning every weekend and I know that I'm always going to be saying that unless I get rid of some of the stuff that's causing the clutter and get the remaining items organized. I've already gone through my piles and piles of CD cases and thrown most of them in the garbage. They've been in a box for well over a year now and I figure if I haven't needed them yet I'm probably not going to be needing them any time soon. So I'm planning on going through all my boxes and seeing what I can get rid of. I have some old school text books that I was hoping to read but I know that it's not going to happen since I've had them in the box for about 5 years (maybe more). The list I made breaks the big chores down into smaller sections so that it's not only more manageable but I feel a sense of accomplishment by being able to check each item off as I complete it. So instead of writing down "clean room" I've put all the little tasks within my room that need to be done like "clean desk", "vacuum floor" etc etc. I've already managed to check a few of them off but I still have a lot to go. One important one that I have to do is create a budget for myself. I've started by cutting up my Radioshack and Sony cards. I don't have enough control to not use them, so I've destroyed them. So I only have one credit card left.
I've also written down a whole list of goals. Little short term things that I want to accomplish. I want to always keep them in sight or on me somewhere, like in my purse, to keep me focused. Some of them are really easy and a few of them will take a bit more work but all of them are meant to make my life and health better. I'm hoping that all these things help. It's just a matter of getting myself into the habit of doing them and sticking to it. I'm pretty sure I'll see a lot of good change as long as I stick to it. I've gotten into so many bad habits and breaking them won't be easy, but I'm sure it will really pay off and I'll feel much better about myself once I do break them.
