"Everything has seasons, and we have to be able to recognize when something's time has passed and be able to move into the next season. Everything that is alive requires pruning as well, which is a great metaphor for endings." ~Henry Cloud /// New blog coming tomorrow about the seasons of life. Now feels right. Yes, now. #SondraWrites
Day #23 declutter
My week has been spent doing a lot of decluttering. I have a few of my favorite owls, alarm clock, my night time hearing aid holder that I have had since I was a kid, and a piece of quartz i found in Colorado on my nightstand now. I guess some people may consider this all clutter, but I like to have these little reminders to wake up to every morning (well, maybe minus my alarm clock 😂😂) I never thought until now how important decluttering is to self care. It creates such a more peaceful environment to conduct my daily life.
Hi there! It's been a while since I posted on here so here's a few updates!
1 ↠ WE HAVE OUR FIRST HIKE TOMORROW! Yes, it's going to be rainy... maybe even a thunderstorm or two but I determined not to cancel (again 🤦♀️) so if you're up for it, I'll be there! Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater at noon. If you need more information, click on the link above to join the Facebook group. If you don't have a Facebook group, leave a comment and I'll add you to a message thread within Instagram where I add all the hike details.
2 ↠ Why don't I put the exact details here for everyone to see. Because it's public, and honestly I'm trying to keep creepers away! I researched a lot about the best way to pass around info AND the conclusion was somewhere controlled and private to help mitigate unwanted attention. I will touch more on this soon!
3 ↠ If you've requested to join the Facebook group and you use strange nickname or have no profile picture, I haven't added you. If you're still pending and either of the two things above applies to you, please private message me here in Instagram so we can figure that out.
4 ↠ I am getting settled into my new job and developing a better schedule/sense of time. This means more time for this community and Instagram in general!
5 ↠ i hope everyone is having a happy weekend! 😊 #womenhikingcolorado
I once put together a fall colors retreat. I cancelled it because only two people signed up. I put together another one a year later and no one signed up for that either. Sometimes you "fail" at what you do but the love is there just the same.
In my heart I now believe maybe I was meant to enjoy the colors without a big production. Just those who truly matter most.
Oh and don't carve trees kids. There's too much of that already out there. They're beautiful just as they are. But when they are carved to me they look like scars...and scars are beautiful.
Except that Mazda logo burned into my arm from the airbag from my car wreck. That thing is ugly 🤣
