That quote up there is on my vision board. (Yes, I now have one. It's still quite bare but I'll fill it up soon.)
I've been tidying up my room. Years overdue because I've been dreading it. Such a hefty task. So glad I've done it, though! Cleared some space. Gotten rid of most clutter. Donated books. Recycled others. Who knew throwing things away can be so ... liberating? Don't gasp, but I've thrown away many of my freewriting books as well. Journals that have saved my sanity at those stages but have now served out their purpose. Now they are reminders of times I was hurting or struggling or striving.
So I let go of them. And they of me.
I'm still striving. Every morning I begin anew, or try to.
Another way I've been re-solidifying myself: books.
That's it for me this week. I'll be taking a short vacation but will still be around. (I've come to the realization that when I'm on vacation, I read, write and paint ~ essentially, I do the same things as when I'm at work.)
What have you been up to? Like tidying rooms or hate it?

Really enjoyed the honest voice of this narrator ~ a teenager let down by his mother and the foster care system, and almost-picked up through his involvement with a gang.
