6th January - Order
My adolescent within is learning order.
As a teenager, I hated it when my mom told me to clean my room. It was my room, wasn't it? I could decide how I wanted to live. So, in rebellion, I made certain my bedroom was always a mess - shoes and clothes and worse strewn on the floor.
As an adult, I'm still stuck with my rebellious teenager. Sometimes I think his piles of trash will bury me. Cleaning up after him leaves me angry and exhausted.
Today I will take control of my environment, I no longer have to feel overwhelmed by the enormity of housekeeping tasks. I make my own messes and I will clean them up. When I have finished using something, I will put it back. I make sure I am not inadvertently bringing the outside inside. I will work with, instead of against myself. Today my environment will reflect my inner accord.
