Debby McCuiston, the “Queen of Clutter-Free”, does a segment for us each Sunday on simplifying our lives, getting rid of “clutter”, and focusing on what’s important. We look forward to her words of wisdom each week & hope you enjoy it too! Take it away Debby….
Do you ever sit around and dream about things you want to accomplish in your life time? It’s one of my husband’s and my favorite things to do on Saturday mornings. We sleep until we are ready to get up (or our bones start to ache) then we move to the living room for a cup of coffee. If we don’t have anything that has to be done or anywhere to go, we can talk for hours. We talk about our dreams about projects for our house, we plan new exercise programs, and things we want to do- budget wise. We even talk about how to solve the world’s problems, and what we will do when we retire.
It’s my favorite way to waste a day!
We’ve dreamed about some of the same things for years. We have planned projects, some we have completed, some we have reworked and some are still in the dreaming stage. But to be honest some dreams are always going to be dreams. There will always be things that stand in our way; money and time seem to be the biggest road blocks. Realistically, our biggest challenge is failing to plan the project from start to finish. As a result we have unfinished projects; some are waiting for the time and/or money to magically appear.
Dreaming is my favorite part of any project, we dream big! There is no cost involved and can be finished before days end. However, nothing ever gets finished when all we do is dream, talk and drink coffee.
