Small Victory and a Taunt!

ORDER - Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.

Ta Da!!!

And I want to report (brag) that I did not just dump the stuff in a box to deal with it later. I sorted and found the proper home for everything. (If you missed the post with the before shot click here.)When the stuff that made the cut gets to the new house it will live where it belongs!

I planned on giving you a big update on how I FreeCycled everything today but my wireless and their site just were NOT cooperating. Took me an hour to get one post up and I finally gave up and did one group listing of everything... which isn't as good likely and as of this moment it is STILL awaiting moderator approval!! . If you don't know what FreeCycle is you should check it out. I was first introduced when my friend Richard got this gorgeous new couch and he told me he got it FREE!! Yes people give the stuff, sometimes really nice stuff, away that they no longer want. I was trying to do a bulk give away today.  Hopefully I'll have something to report tomorrow.

Just for fun I want to share what one friend had to say about the project so far:

Michelle says, "love this everyday bliss. I am noticing part of my bliss is admitting when I am not in bliss and letting it be, and then the bliss comes back. In regards to "order", I have taken on giving away one thing a day and I am happy to say, that part is very easy for me. Somedays I give away a lot more than one thing. It is fun for me to try to think of what I can give to whom and how happy that person will be."

I am just delighted to know that Michelle and so many of you are having fun with it.

If you are a daily reader of this blog then you know that I announced my Everyday Bliss Give Away a couple of days ago.  I told you the Give Away includes a copy of Ben Franklin's Autobiography and a little whimsical surprise.  Well today I thought I would taunt you all with a photo of what you will be getting!

I will choose a winner this Sunday (October 4, 2009)  Enter the Everyday Bliss Giveaway here.

Ben Franklin's 13 Virtues

  • 1. TEMPERANCE - Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
  • 2. SILENCE - Speak not what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
  • 3. ORDER - Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
  • 4. RESOLUTION - Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
  • 5. FRUGALITY - Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e. waste nothing.
  • 6. INDUSTRY - Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
  • 7. SINCERITY - Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and if you speak, speak accordingly.
  • 8. JUSTICE - Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
  • 9. MODERATION - Avoid extreams; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
  • 10. CLEANLINESS - Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths or habitation.
  • 11. TRANQUILITY - Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
  • 12. CHASTITY - Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or to the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation.
  • 13. HUMILITY - Imitate Jesus and Socrates.
