31 Days of Autumn Awesome: Creating Purpose

In the hopes of creating a household that is both nurturing and purposeful. I quickly realized I wasn’t exactly sure what sort of “purpose” I wanted my house to convey.

http://www.thenester.com introduced me to 31 days of… and well to be honest. I missed a day and my days are always off due to my schedule. Being a “hospital vampire” I can easily lose track of my days and often find myself making “not so smart” choices with my time. I’m easily distracted and sometimes lack focus. Not to say I never get anything done and don’t make progress but let’s just say I have my fair share of half started craft projects that could easily be finished if I dedicated and used my time wisely. But SOME days I’m playing so much catch up that I basically don’t feel like doing or finishing anything.


So the ultimate conclusion I came to is that I need to make lists of the things that need to be finished. 1 list of things to have finished within the week, 1 list of things that should be finished within the month and a list of things that need to be finished within 3 months.


The ultimate goal of how I’d like my house to function and serve a purpose would be to create a space that encourages growth and learning.  In order for something to grow in a healthy manner it needs space and organization. Like a plat it needs regular water, sunlight and properly nourishing soil/food.  I need to take my house on room by room and go through it floor to ceiling to clear out junk and clutter and rid the rooms of things that have a number of items that don’t serve a purpose to that ROOM. i.e having a kitchen item in the bedroom. Now, not to say it can’t belong in the bedroom… ( we all know I’m a bit kinky and things can get wild in there! )

So as best I can say is that I need to approach this room by room. piece by piece to get things in order both in my mind and physically.

31 Days of Autumn Awesome


I’ve never attempted anything like this before and honestly haven’t had much consistency with the current blog I randomly do stuff with. I stumbled upon www.thenester.com through most liekly www.pintrest.com I’m doing this to help gain focus in my life, To improve my over all satisfaction with my life choices. These next 31 days will hopefully bring me some peace, inspire me to continue to express myself and share things most important to me. Some of my posts may not be safe for work or public few. I will give for warning and of course maintain high levels of respect for my readers but I will not censor my life experiences. I choose to view life as a learning journey. If you stop learning new things your life begins to lose its SPARKLE. and well I LOOOOOVE SHINEY things! I’m sure as you follow along formats will change, look and the way I post but well…. as I said I’ve not done anything like this before ( except write in a physical journal) so bare with me and hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride, learn something new and maybe even meet someone new by interacting with the comments that may arise based on the daily topic. I welcome constructive commentary and humorous interjection. But lets keep it civil people.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched… but are felt by the heart. – Helen Keller

Do what feels good until it doesn’t feel good anymore.. THEN, try it in a different way.

With so many negative things that happen in day to day life it becomes almost second nature to focus on them and become so fixated on the negativity that it over takes your life and pulls you down with it. Coming to the realization that we as humans are creatures of habit and will only change because of “fight or flight” or forced / fright.

Too often people shy away from challenges that arise for fear of judgement or failure.


Give it  a shot. Make an educated and CONSCIOUS decision to play an ACTIVE role in creating the story of your life that you want to tell to your children and tell to their children.

This is my first of many entries of a blog that I hope will take my life and self to a higher place. I am a seeker. A seeker of things that hide in the shadows and dance between the  rain drops. I do things a little bit differently and will forever be a free spirit wandering, NOT LOST but SEEKING.


What will you find today?
