Lessons in Letting Go by Corrine Grant + 2011 Lists to STOP & DO ...

2010 Christmas gifts were more than I ever imagined ...
so much thought had gone in to the selecting ...

one of MJ's gifts was ...
(she knows me too well.)

I've been unable to finish a complete book since 2008 ...
this was a brekathrough.

On Friday night I snuggled in bed for a read ...
by 2am I'd read three quarters ...
when I woke I picked it up again ...
two hours later I'd finished!

It's a super easy read ...
the beginning was like listening to a conversation.

For me it became annoying as she inanely rattled on ...
her low opinion of herself infuriated me.

 However it picked up and ended on a positive high!

I related to a number of her probs and her solutions.

If you're overwhelmed by stuff, do yourself a favour!

Meanwhile ...
I've been blocked at the begining of 2011 ...

My fave bloggers are making lists for 2011 here ...
I adore a list ... so here's mine for 2011.

Things to STOP::

 ... spending,
         ... procrastinating,
... worrying,
     ... being scared,
  ... being hurt,
                       ... doing projects in my head

Things to DO::

                                             ... get the exhibiton done with time to spare,
                               ... get the projects out of my head,
                             ... purge belongings                    
                     ... lose weight                   
    ... do New York,
participate in Sophies Fleamarket Finds without going to a Flea Market.

That'll do ...
editing the list has been exhausting ...
so much to do ~ so little time.

Hope your 2011 is smoothing out and finding direction like mine is♥

I've purged heaps of stuff over the last couple of years but I still have much more to go!

I like your stop list - all the same things that I need to stop too. I hadn't thought about the stop spending, but that's a really good one.

I like your stop list too. It's a beauty.

Exhibitions and New York sound absolutely fabulous.

I hope 2011 is full of good things for you.

I must read this book sometime! I'm always purging stuff, but hopefully there are some ideas on how to stop spending. Hubby and I have already had 'the talk' so I have to find a way to stop myself from buying anything I want. I'm doing well so far, but hey, we're only 5 days into the New Year. Sigh! xx
