So I'm almost ready to start listing some large items for sale to hopefully get some space and cash back. Today though, I did some work on making my balcony a nicer space. I bought a little hand broom to clean up the dirt that got all over. I also got some large planters, which I hope one day will have plants in them. There seems to be a plant shortage for full sun varieties in my area. My timing is impeccable as usual.
But I did manage to find some cute little succulents for pots I already had and just this change has me feeling pretty happy.
I'm planning to make much better use of the space. I also got a yoga mat for working out there as I thought it could be a nice way to start my days. And I thought I could even use my little practice sword out there. It's a mini fukuro shinai, for those interested. Of course there is definitely going to be some reading, drinking, chilling, and maybe even some ukulele too.
This week, I got my tires changed finally and I went with a place that will store them for the season. So, I reclaimed space in my annoyingly triangular storage space. I was able to move a cupboard into there, which I will be using to get some tool storage out of my unit.
I'm really looking forward to getting rid of the larger items taking up a chunk of my already small living space. Every time I get something out of the condo I feel less burdened.
I think it's really important that I'm reclaiming space. It's important for my mental health. For far too long I've wanted to do things like read more and when I try in bed, I just fall asleep. I've also needed places set aside for relaxation that aren't full of clutter. Clutter just gets my mind thinking about a todo list instead of allowing my mind and body to relieve the stress of the day.
I'm so fucking excited about this!
