Quotable Monday: Perfection, Disorganization and Candles

I spent part of the weekend sorting through items. The last boxes of a move or in this case many moves. Those last boxes wound up in storage after each move. I am bound and determined to go through of them and keep what is worth keeping, giving away what can be donated and trashing what needs to be thrown out. It is a very slow but interesting exercise.

“One of the advantages of being disorganized is that one is always having surprising discoveries.”
― A.A. Milne
"Organization aids peace of mind, creativity and time effectiveness.
Disorganization causes stress, fractured thinking and wasted time.
To stay organized you must develop systems unique to your situation, whether it is handling paperwork, managing email, conducting meetings, using a follow-up file or scheduling in a planner"
 ~ Harold Taylor

Transformation is a slow process... and I need to remind the impatient side of me of the following:
“It's not about perfect. It's about effort. And when you bring that effort every single day, that's where transformation happens. That's how change occurs.”
― Jillian Michaels
Oh about those boxes... at least three of them had candles or candle accessories....guess it is time to burn some candles!!!
"I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage."
