Make Room for Success

We just finished deconstructing Christmas, and the house looks so empty!  It made me think about how important it is to clear out the old to make room for the new. 

I also went through a Christmas bin where I have kept holiday greeting cards for 25 years!  What a trip down memory lane that was!  I cut the front of cards that had not been written on so I could reuse them as gift tags.  There are some really pretty ones to use next year and beyond!  My husband and I also organized all of the photo cards from friends who had faithfully sent them over the years.  It is amazing to watch kids grow as so many people send photos of their families!  Whew!

So, as we prepare to focus on our 2013 resolutions/intentions/desires, take some time to check out your kitchen and pantry.  This area of your life is such an important part of your healthy journey!  Make sure you either hide (really well) or toss out all of the food that will not serve you in your healthy journey.  You know what I am talking about.....candy, cookies, baked sweets of all sorts!  If you cannot bring yourself to throw it out, then try wrapping it really well and freezing it for a future treat. 

Out with the old to make room for your 2013 successful healthy journey!  Now go get busy!

Desire to begin a healthy 2013.  Dedication to honor fond memories.  Discipline to purge what is not serving you.


  1. Great post Patty! I also use old card fronts and tape/glue them onto cute paper shopping bags to make new "gift bags." You can get really creative with ribbon borders, etc., or keep it simple.

    I sent all the remaining cookies home with my sister-in-law, now it's time to make up for the damage done!

    Here's to a healthy 2013!

    1. Thank goodness for all the abundance in our lives and the opportunity to bring back balance!

      Hurray for you!!!
