Cluttercast update: Clarity? Closure? Or Clueless?

December 30th, 2009

It’s your call— after you  read what I  just posted on my personal blog:

Are you making  a New Year’s Resolution?

Exactly one year ago, as my New Year’s resolution,  I started my other blog,  Cluttercast.

Every day I posted an item from my clutter, and gave it away to someone who wanted it.

It was a big success—-most of all, for me.   This was the first time in my entire life I successfully kept my New Year’s resolution.

At least for 6  months.

That’s about when I went from cluttercasting daily……to sporadically…..to rarely.

A year later, I wish I could say I’m out of clutter.   I am out of the habit of cluttercasting it.

And unlike other projects I haven’t finished, this isn’t something I can  hide in a closet or stick in a drawer.   Cluttercast is out there.

And there it sits.  Like the elephant in the living room.  (In fact, I actually cluttercast some elephants!)

Even elephants probably follow Newton’s basic law— an object in motion will stay in motion.

More to the point, an object at rest will stay at rest.

I hate making decisions;   I’ve been struggling over what to do.   New Year’s seems like the perfect deadline to decide:

Cluttercast?

Clarity?

Closure?

All of the above?

None of the above?

Or  my friend Myra’s brilliant suggestion—-that I cluttercast Cluttercast.

Meanwhile it’s almost New Year’s—–and I finally made a decision:   This year I’m not making a New Year’s resolution.
