Be yourself

Be true to you...with a little help
make the connection
say what you feel
and smile, more

Word for 2011

My word of the year is TRY.
I give up too easily,
I don't start because I think I'll never finish,
This year if it looks interesting,
if it looks worthwhile,
if it's something I always wanted to do,
well, this year I'm going to TRY
and lets see how much more I can achieve

Baggage and should I share.........?

Hi folks.  Brrr chilly old day.  Ice is back on the inside of my windows.  A bit of sun would be nice!
Following yesterday's post about change, and quotes, and words that can act as backgrounds for behaviour,
and thanks for all your amazing comments by the way:) golly, you are a.m.a.z.i.n.g!
I've been busy and working on my PLAN.
Instead of launching into the obvious"I will write a book" "...earn a fortune" etc, I'm looking at what's stopping me doing the important stuff before now.  And how I'm going to deal with it.
Here's a clue, what if you were to change what's normal for you and make a new normal?
Figure out what the issues are, unpack them
and learn how to deal with them.
No need if your normal is totally blinking brilliant.  But mine's not so there you go!
 If you want advice from people who are good at this stuff look here or here or here
Which led me to wonder 'should I share?'
Do you lovely people in blogland really have to know me and all my less-than-perfect,
what I'm really like (oh the horror) reality
or would you rather not?
A series of pages are developing *points to top of page* if you're brave, take a look
Otherwise, you could just wonder, as I am right now

 who needs this many bags?

bye for now
pamela 'making changes, one bag at a time' lol


  1. I HAVE TOO MANY BAGS TOO!! I have them hung on a hanger in a wardrobe (with bags inside bags), stuffed between a bookcase and a wardrobe, hung on the backs of chairs, and stuffed under a chair. Good grief. Your house sounds like mine; I don't ever want to have anyone over, and I hate it, and it's not the way I've ever lived (ever) and it makes me unhappy and if it were just up to me it'd be so so different but it's not. Ugh. So complicated.

    I love the new pages! Especially the about page. :) I don't watch movies with my husband for the same reason - he talks throughout them because he has no idea what's going on.

  2. Hi thanks so much for dropping in and your kind words too. I love your blog.
    I have decluttered this year big time and I mean big time!. I did a bag declutter too I think before I started I had 36 bags! now I have about 6. I bought a leather messenger bag which I use day in day out. I kept swapping bags before and leaving things in all different bags! Would like to get it down further too. Its very liberating decluttering
    take care x

  3. Hi Pamela and thank you for dropping by my blog :)

    My handbags are the last piece of my old 'shopping life' and clutter that I'm clinging onto. They hang on the back of my bedroom door and wave at me every morning!

  4. I had a massive declutter last year and got rid of a load of bags, but I still have way more than I ever use. When you're finding things you forgot you had, you know you're never gonna miss them!

  5. I am in the midst of preparing to move, going through accumulated decades of life detritus, discovering just how little 'stuff' I really need to be happy. Give me good friends, a warm house, and a hot cuppa! I love your sense of humor and look forward to reading your blog much more often. Happy Holidays from Alaska!!
