Today has been one of those days where I looked around my room and felt like cleaning. On these days, I take full advantage of the rare feeling and so I started organizing and going through drawers that I honestly haven't gone through in a long time. I read through all of my old letters - the one from my mom saying how proud of me she was, brought tears to my eyes. I found some things that were given to me by ex-boyfriends - in which I proceeded to throw those things away in bag that is now in the garbage outside. I even managed to create a pile of things for Goodwill - most of which I have kept for no reason at all in the first place and may make someone else happy.
I am such a hog. I like to keep everything that has some kind of meaning to it. It's something that I've been really working on in the last year or so. I figure I might as well start now so that when Mister and I get a house together it won't be as much of a pain. It's nice getting rid of things. Shortly after I started my relationship with Mister I got rid of a stupid box at the top of my closet full of things from my ex's and boy did that feel good slamming that in the garbage. It's almost a cleansing of the past in a way.
Now that I am all done reorganizing and throwing a lot away, my room looks pretty darn good. My closet is organized, my drawers are nice and neat, and my clothes are officially arranged by sleeve length and color. I feel accomplished!
So here's to a new start and a clean room!
