"Eighty percent of success is showing up"
- Woody Allen
Remember my New Year's Resolution? Well, I have a little confession about that. I fell off the wagon. Then, I read this post and the simple truth of it struck me. So, I decided to stop feeling guilty and get back to what I set out to do.
I spent Sunday working on Reid's room, which for the last few weeks has been a total disaster. Between Christmas toys and birthday toys, we couldn't even close the closet door. We had a school book that we had been unable to find for the last three weeks and he had stopped playing in there because it was such a mess. We had picked up and picked up and picked up, but the truth is, what we really needed to do was just get rid of stuff.
Two giant yard bags full of toys and books are going to Salvation Army today and the room is SO much nicer now. It's like a breath of fresh air. And, the best part is, Reid can find what he needs and he has room to sit and play.
I really should have taken some before photos, because then you could really see the transformation, but since I didn't, here are the after shots:
