Nick cautioned me to be proud of those miles. I can't lie and say I am. I see them as a personal challenge, a very low base to build on.
I want to shoot for 10 miles this week and get to where I thought I was! But those darned experts are all, "you should only increase mileage 10 percent per week!" Ugh, experts with their slide rules and their pocket protectors.
Fine, my goal for this week is 5 miles.

|I didn't take a "BEFORE" picture, but 15 minutes ago this drawer was a mess.|
I've identified a major flaw in my thinking at the moment of each decluttering decision:
I don't want this now, but I might want it later.
- I don't like this tangerine pleated polyester knit -- and I haven't liked it in ten years -- but one day, I might find the perfect use for it.
- This kelly green liquid eyeliner is really high maintenance -- and I only wear eyeliner about once a month -- but some fun Saturday night I will wish I had it.
- I don't have time for this 1970s creative visualization workbook, but maybe one day that will be my thing!
All of these authentic examples were F-R-E-E. It's not like I dropped some dough, and now I can't let go.
Another GIANT issue: if I ever did want or need one of these things, I would have forgotten I own it, or I would not be able to find it!
Ok, I'm ready for someone to park a dumpster outside the window so I can start chucking without even fooling with garbage bags.
