Keep Life Simple and Clean

Keep life simple and clean. That's my mantra for 2010. And so, I've begun de-cluttering my life.
"The secret to decluttering your brain is to figure out what you can and
can’t change. Maybe the only thing you can change about certain situations is
your attitude." (How to Declutter
Your Life.)

This was echoed in What Came Down Today, a wonderful blog written by "a distractable writer and author who is attempting to learn everything (and ends up writing about most of it)".

"Why are we doing things the way we’ve always done it? Why not do something
different? The best innovations and ideas come when we strive to do things
differently than everyone around us."

I find a certain comfort in that statement. It gives me a whole new arena to explore my story. And when you just show up, write your story - one that has only your imprint on it - the possibilities, and choices, are endless.

In creating your vision, you are daring to dream big. And I don't know about you, but I'm sick to death of playing it safe. I stumble now as I follow in the footprints of the guy in front of me. In short, I'm going back to the drawing board so I can begin to create anew. Granted, it's not easy to throw out a lifetime of bad habits, excuses, and negative self-talk in one fell swoop, but I've got to start somewhere.

So I'll start with a vision. My vision. I'll dare to create a different story, and I'll make it big. Because if we're going to do something different, we might as well go all the way. There, that's simple, and that's clean.

What about you?
