Since January,I've been trying to do one small project every week or so, either for myself, for the home, or for my family. It's nothing big. Arranging my dressing drawer. Arranging a pretty centerpiece for the living room table. Writing one blog post. Nothing big or overwhelming that might scare me into not doing it at all, or actually tackling it then not finish it because I got swamped.
This week project is getting rid of my old books. I'm an avid reader and boast a huge collection of books. Some books, though, I decided that after reading them once, I don't care to keep them in my treasure chest. These books I collect, I put them into a small A4 paper cardboard box, and once the box is full, I sell them to a used book store. I also sold about a dozen or so to friends via my facebook. They are happy about it because they can buy cheaper than at the bookstores.That way when I'm looking at my book collection, I only see the ones that I know I'll enjoy reading over and over again, and not just a bunch of random books which reminded me of "wrong buys". At the same time, I'm providing extra space to buy new books, AND make some pocket money. Not much, but better than those books just sitting there collecting dust.
I found that finishing small projects like that give me satisfaction and a sense of achievement. It makes me feel good and productive, and encourages me to do more projects and get even more organized. So yeah, I believe in taking baby steps. Start small. And before you know it, by the end of the year, you would have finished 52 mini projects. That doesn't sound so small, isn't it?
So don't think just because this is not January anymore, it's too late. It's never too late for self improvement. Start now. You'll be happy that you did later on. I did. I do. ^_^
I'm wearing fuschia pink and camel brown today. I love the bird detailing going on this medalion style necklace. It's so dainty and cute.
