# bedroom # challenge

(almost) Wordless Wednesday

Happy middle of a darned snowy week, everyone! I cannot believe it. I went outside yesterday and cleared the snow from the porch and the porch steps. Then, I shoveled a pathway to the driveway and shoveled half of the driveway. What did I wake up to today? More snow! Nononononono! C'mon weather gods, have pity on me!

Well, I'll deal with all of that outside later. For now, I need to deal with the next phase of "The Wall." The end is within reach and I'm not giving up. I also need to show you my photo for this week. The theme at Sunday Shutterbugs is Door. Well, since I've been so focused on The Wall and getting stuff handled around here, I didn't take the time to go take a cool picture. I had some awesome photos from England that I wanted to share, but I can't find them anywhere. I'm a bit freaked by that. So, instead, I went back to May of last year and found this photo.

Hallway to Robing Area
This is actually a set of doorways. These are important doorways. These are the doors that I walked to on my way to Commencement 2009. I almost didn't go because I didn't have anyone there cheering for me, but I went because I had walked through a lot of doorways and up a lot of hills to get to that point. I won't say it was easy. It wasn't, but I don't regret any of it for a moment.

I want that for all of you. I've learned that sometimes the most rewarding things are the most difficult things to achieve. I count cleaning, organizing and decluttering in that. I know just how hard it can be to start, let alone to finish. When your physical surroundings are in chaos, so are you. I want you to find peace. So, your challenge for today is to go through your bed linens. Do you have those that have holes in them; that are just plain wearing you? Donate them to a local animal shelter. Get them out of your house and keep only those that will surround you in comfort and peace while you sleep.

How profound what you said about how you had walked through lots of doors and up lots of hills to get to that point. So true. And you deserved to go whether there was anyone there cheering for you or not! I'm happy for you that you didn't cheat yourself out of that experience.

And thanks for participating with us again this week on Shutterbugs!
