TCOY Thinking: No Guilt Allowed

The tail end of the "busy season" at my day job was also filled with final preparations for our first ever Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony to honor local high school athletes, coaches, officials, administrators and benefactors in our area.

Planning a first event is always a challenge and this was no exception. We've seen our guest list swell from 180 to a maximum capacity 520 in the last 2 weeks! Oh, and the event is tomorrow. Talk about people waiting until the last minute. It has been some exciting but harried last few days. Everyone in my office has helped to plan the event and we will all be truly happy when Monday, October 25th is here...the day after the event.

Unfortunately, the combination of the "busy season" overload and only so much time available for extras like posting to my blogs was hardest felt by my other blog, the 365 Days of Decluttering Challenge. The posting of both the September Focus Challenge and the October Focus Challenge were pushed to the back-burner.

If you're a (mostly reformed) procrastinator like me, then you can already guess what happened. Putting up the missing September post and prepping the October post was on my to-do list for the entire month of October. Really. Just carried over from one day to the next, hoping that today is the day when I'd make time to get it done. They don't take much time to think up and format for posting, yet I just kept procrastinating. As I said, hoping that the ever-promising "some day" would finally come.

Well, I'm very pleased to say that I finally made "some day"! Though I'm not happy that my duties to the 365 Days of Decluttering Challengers went so long unfulfilled, I am very proud of myself for not letting it go a day longer and remembering that our unofficial challenge motto is "no guilt allowed".

I hope you'll take a moment to check out the September Focus Challenge and the October Focus Challenge for our little decluttering project. To me, decluttering doesn't end. We all buy. We all consume. And we all have the potential of letting clutter in the door or keeping it here when we get more stuff. The October Focus Challenge even has bonus inspiration courtesy of MaryJo, writer of the reSPACEd blog.

Until next time...Take Care Of You!
