if you’ve pushed up your sleeves for a little spring cleaning, my guess is there’s some decluttering in your forecast, too.
and while spring cleaning is easy enough, the elimination of anything in our environment can quickly get tricky, even worrisome. we start entertaining excuses, and (often) inevitably, those things end up sitting around even longer.
how about you try this instead?
think of seasonal tidying as an opportunity to evaluate what you want circulating in your life.
consider that every single thing around you either persuades what you want in and out of your life or discourages and diffuses those opportunities. (what do i mean? read this.)
we get out of life what we tolerate, so change begins when we let go of whatever reinforces patterns and feelings that leave us with bone deep ambivalence.
and to help you climb (once-and-for-all) out of overwhelm and indecision onto higher ground, i compiled a list of 20 questions i often employ when working with clients and their clutter.
so, when you’re ready for an honest conversation with your stuff, start here:
save this and come back to it whenever your resolve dissolves.
trust your instincts and first answers.
only when we let things go can we reclaim the part of ourselves that’s attached to them. xo
