Both 2015 & 2016 have been hectic years for me. Busy but good. Not THAT good but not too bad either. I was so busy that I completely forgot about my undertaking on 18 April 2015 to do at least three blogs each year.
I know I had some ATTITUDE issues during 2015, but it was not all that bad. Then came 2016 and before I knew it I was back in the same old rut and negative state of mind without even realising it – you know the story about putting a frog in a pot with cold water and then you start heating up the water. Happy frog I was, just sitting there in the boiling water during almost the whole of 2016.
So why do I want to write [again]? Sandra Swanepoel said so: writing declutters the mind. I believe decluttering your home is good for the soul so a decluttered mind also must have some benefit. I would not know if any of this is true because we live in our happily cluttered home and my cluttered mind keeps me out of mischief. I think. Maybe. I don’t know.
Not much is different from two years ago. Martin got a job and car and is in a “relationship so complicated facebook has no words to describe it”. I still spend every minute of my free time selling books on behalf of Casa Caritas. Irma and I had opportunity to travel a bit and have been on a few great weekend breaks over the last few months. Food for our souls. As for Stiaan: Nothing has really changed. He got older and taller and he throws things around harder and further! No complaints there!
So I decided I will keep to my promise of at least three blogs per year! Starting today. Not really saying anything. Just mumbling to myself. Where others can read it.
Maybe something better will be on the menu next time, more than just some random thoughts. Decluttering a mind takes some time I guess. One thought at a time…
