I read this today in my email from ineedmoretime newletter. This was an inspiration to me.
"I've been getting rid of some clutter -- anything that doesn't serve a positive purpose in my life -- and making room for things that feel happy to me. Because I get to make my life whatever I want it to be. I get to make the room feel however I want it to feel. I get to make the closet as full or as spacious as I want it. And, if I have more clutter to get rid of after Christmas, I'm not going to wait a year or two or three to do it." -Jan Denise (American columnist, author and speaker)
I think I am going to print that quote out and laminate it and put it in my planner. I may even make it the cover! A reminder. And it doesn't stop with the physical clutter. A few others have mentioned mental clutter. I need to go thru and get rid of negative thoughts and spend more time filling my mind with positive thoughts which the majority for me come thru the Scriptures.
I still have a pile on my kitchen counter from my decluttering kitchen/laundry closet project. I think that I will be able to get thru more of it tonight because I have just equipped myself with the tool (the quote) to help me make the right choices for me.
