Congratulations! You have decided to declutter your home and you have chosen a small area in which to begin your journey. Now let the games begin, the game where YOU get to decide what stays and what goes. I know, this is easier said than done, so not only is it important for you to start in a small area but I also believe it is just as important to choose an area in which you have little emotional connection to “the stuff.” For me, this would be our work area that includes a desk, some drawers and shelves. Because I am not emotionally attached to any of the items my choices are rather simple, I either need to keep it, pay it, file it, recycle it or throw it away.
Working in areas where you have little or no emotional connections with the items allows decisions to be made quicker and easier resulting in a smooth and gentle process. Being able to work quickly and efficiently gets the cleaning juices flowing giving you the desire to move on and continue the beautiful work that you have started.
………………until next time.
You are a superhero!
