I'm feeling a *teensy* bit overwhelmed with things still left to do... so I'm surfing the web!
And I found an article that makes self-acceptance one step closer. It's right here.
I liked this quote: "You discover things that, if you had filed things or containerized them or purged them, you never would have seen them again." As opposed to seeing them months after you last saw them, as happens here.
Years ago, I realized filing just doesn't work for me. Not that I had tried it or anything - it was an intuitive guess. :) I wanted to put cork board on one whole wall, and just pin things to it - that way, I'd see them, they wouldn't get lost in a pile, I would know where they were. That's how I remember things, visually - I can "see" where I last saw it. A wall of cork board! Yes! But the ex wouldn't go for it, and I forgot I wanted to do that. If I had pinned that idea on a cork board, I'd've remembered!
Something to think about for the new year, perhaps that will be my winter project.
Something like this:
And I like this one, but I don't drink, and it's been a while since I tended bar:
But I can see that working. It would be a soft spot for the boys to bang into, too! Hmm... a cork room?
