Purging feels so good

Other than quitting the pub, and Facebook, I'm in a major purging and trusting for God's provision phase. I stripped my closet bare last week, cleaned up our room, I'm just realizing that so much "stuff" is actually not making me feel more fulfilled - it's what stresses me out. So I'm responsibly purging all that can stand to go. I think it's the Smithers mentality rubbing off on this Lower Mainland girl. I think the reason Smithers appealed to me so much is the quietness, the stillness of it all. Now that we're not going, it makes me realize I can have the same kind of life here. I just have to be more conscious of what I hold dear. As our wedding verse says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." It's proving true right now.

In the same vein, Wayne is also purging - he quit his dream job today ay CN Rail to go back to Vitality. He'll be back to Monday to Friday, the office is 5 minutes from home, we can get back to a regular church schedule (maybe even a LIFE group? GASP!), he'll feel less crappy about how he's being treated and there's lots of room to move up. I am so blessed to have a man whose automatic desire is to do what's best for our family - he's the most unselfish man I've ever met. I just want to see him happy.

He is making dinner for me right now. It's my birthday - yip! - and he left flowers on my chair this morning when I came back into my office from a meeting. I got some real goodies for m'anniversaire and I intend to photograph and post them to show them off. Stand by!

  1. I love purging a lot. It never gets old. I love giving stuff away and making better use of space. Making room for new.

    I have been on a similar thinking path - reading "In Praise of Slow". (recommend it).

    Sorry the dream job didn't work out, but glad he can return to where he is treated well. There is much to be said for being treated well. Life's too short.
