Getting Things Done.. FINALLY

Since moving into our newest place, I haven't exactly had the time to make it a home. Sure, it's fully furnished and the cabinets and closets are overflowing (literally), but my biggest goal has always been to organize. This week although Virginia has been cursed with snow, I've been blessed with a week of no school due to the inclement weather. I took the time to sit back and relax (which is something I never do) and clean. I always joke about wanting to be a 'stay at home wife,' but I'm quite sure I'd be out spending way too much money shopping just to keep from going crazy. Another great thing about being stuck inside was getting to spend some much needed quality time with my loves. After school all week and work all weekend, I tend to mentally have no time for much else. I just realized and accepted sometimes doing too much can hurt the foundation of our lives.. which is home. I've always been one to want to hurry up and get through school, but work just as much. I now see what my downfall was when I started my degree 7 years ago. I always thought it was a shame that I only have 2 1/2 years of college to show for, especially since I started taking college classes while I was still in high school. I did manage to accomplish quite a bit, however. Going off and joining the Army, completing cosmetology school, becoming a makeup artist, and now esthetician.. I can take the time to see I should have stayed proud of myself all along. Now that I've been able to get my mind right, I feel I can tackle school, work, being a good girlfriend/puppy mom, and the big pile of dishes/laundry I'd been avoiding for over a week. On a serious note, never get so discouraged that you become too blind to see the greatness you have to offer. ❤️💋❤️
