I am joining Carole today to share some things from my world this week!
Sometimes it feels like the world is listening and places in your pathway the things you are seeking! This was one of those weeks!
I have been pondering what to do with all my digital photos, especially since I made the decision to part ways with Flickr. And, while I am still working out how best to store and view my digital photo library, Courtney’s latest post was most timely and full of ideas.
I finished Maria Shriver’s little devotional book this morning which was full of such timely advice – but the closing was most timely indeed: There comes a time in all of our lives when it’s time to take stock of what was, what is, and what can be. Don’t hold on to stuff that prevents you from becoming who you can be. Yes! Exactly – and as I continue to contemplate focus – this advice is exactly what I am trying to do. I have written this quote in my journal and will be referring back to it frequently!
Finally, and this might have been the most welcome of all the things, was Robin’s back to the mat challenge this week! I am on Day 4 and loving every minute (and yes, I might be the tiniest bit sore, but it is such a good feeling!!) This jump start comes at the perfect time for me – the holidays, pneumonia, and general laziness had pushed Pilates off my radar and this little jump start is just what I needed to get back on track!
Those are my things! What about you? What things have wandered onto your pathway this week?
Thanks for placing the article about simplifying paper and photos in my pathway! I was okay with getting rid of most paper, but now I’ve become the repository of all my father’s important papers, which means another whole file cabinet. And then there are my digital photos (I’m very slowly getting a handle on those) and all the kids’ artwork. They may have to deal with that when I’m gone; I just can’t throw it away!
I am glad that you are finding the answers to things you’ve been pondering. It’s so nice when the universe does that!
I’ve been stressing over an issue at work that I though might mean a huge change in things for me, but a meeting earlier this week really eased my mind. What a relief! I’m also looking forward to a long weekend (taking the day off tomorrow) and having some extra one-on-one time with my kiddo.
Love that quote and it’s exactly what I needed to hear today/this week. I copied it onto my calendar…. and am thinking I should probably write it on future pages as well. 🙂
My processes for paper have been working pretty well in recent years. Occasionally, I get panicked about the digital stuff & photos, but I have to let those feelings mostly roll off because it’s just not a priority for me right now — a choice that I may regret someday (but I doubt it). I make stabs at it now & then and that’s just how it’s going to be.
I love when the things we need most just show up in our lives.
Three good things! 🙂 I’ve worked really hard over the last few years on establishing a good system for my paper and photos. Still working on the photos (although much progress has been made), and I’m happy to report my paper is under control. Courtney always has good, practical suggestions.
Absolutely no control over photos whatsoever! I’m happy you’ve gotten yourself back to on exercise track…it’s so important. And I’ve got to say I’ve gotten pretty good at letting things go…maybe too good! 😉
I need to sit and think about photos–thank you for sharing the article!
My Pilates teacher is out of town next week and we’ve been gone, so I needed a reminder to get back at it. Thanks!
I have my photos on Flickr and that’s where they’ll stay as it is (for now) the best option out there. Someday I’ll sort and tag them, but for now they’re safely out of my way. 🙂
I back up my computer to a hard drive, I back up photos to a flash drive and up to flickr. I do it monthly so it’s working for me! Amazon Prime allows unlimited photo storage but I’m not sure about the photo size.
Lovely links! I downloaded Maria Shriver’s book yesterday and I’m looking forward to it!
