Ruthless

I've been doing some reading/learning about The Secret, the law of attraction, etc (yes, I watch Oprah, so sue me). I'm manifesting a few things for my life, things that I have been whining about, worrying about, wanting but not doing anything about. In no particular order:

I live in a clutter free and clean house. I do not stress about the state of our living space.

I have a busy doula practice, with three clients a month. My clients have peaceful, gentle births.

I eat when healthy foods when my body is physically hungry. I am fit and strong.

We are financially stable, with money being saved each month after all the bills are paid.

Today was a day that I worked on my clutter free living space. I've declared myself a ruthless declutter-er. It's an amazing feeling to throw away, recycle, or donate items that have been weighing us down. The count for today was 121 items or sets, mostly from my bathroom, under the kitchen sink, the linen closet. Even more exciting, the pile of crap between the phone and the front door is gone. I keep looking over my shoulder just to see counter space where literally hundreds of pieces of paper have been clogging up our counter and sapping my energy. It won't return, because that isn't where things belong.

Of course, when I announced my proud total to Dave, his first response was "you didn't throw away anything IMPORTANT, did you?".

Buzzkill.

No, you have wireless in your bedroom because YOU manifested it! I just got you thinking about it, and you made it so :)
