Cleaning Up and The Delete Button

Lately, I’ve been going through my email and realizing that I am subscribed to so many different newsletters including clothing stores, grocery deals and free book offers, just to mention a few. When I thought that my inbox was only 3K of emails, I figured it was do-able to go through and sort, then delete what no longer interested me. Additionally I unsubscribed to a bunch of things that are no longer relevant to my life now.

My delete button was super exercised and while I’m still a work in progress, I can happily report that I’ve deleted a ton of emails that were old, offers expired etc. I just hope I haven’t deleted anything from my blog that were messages to me from any of you. So if you notice that I never wrote back, with a slip of my delete trigger finger, I might have deleted your message so please write back again! I always answer…

But I want to start January with a clean slate of emails. Purging the old, sorting through what’s now relevant and what no longer resonates with me. It’s getting rid of the possibilities that I once thought were available and being in the now of what is and not with the caveat of ‘if’ anymore.

It’s not that I’ve lost my hunger for hope or luster for thinking outside the box. It’s just that I need to simplify. I need to take care of me more and while that’s harder than it sounds, I want to do it. I need to do it.

It’s been a rough week here still although there’s been a bit of progress and understanding with the kids. More on that later…

Hope you have a great week ahead and that Monday (today) is peaceful!
