“Clutter sucks the life, the spirit and the
creativity out of any space. Getting organized
is a sure first step to a better life.” Peter Walsh
You know, clean and clutter are 2 different things. But boy, a lot of clutter sure make it hard to clean.
I picked up yet another Kirby over the weekend. I got it for a steal, and it was cheaper than getting either one may other machines fixed. So now, I have 3 Kirbys, 3 sets of tools, 4 shampooers. We have an old computer we kep to play windows 95 games on. We found out last weekend that it’s dead.
Someone gave me a bigger TV. It doesn’t fit in my cabinet, so now I have 2 TVs that no one ever watches. An no one wants, since they are old clunkers. I’ll keep the bigger TV, but that will require some furniture moving. And my daughter voted for no TV on the main floor, so I’m guessing I’ll have to pitch the smaller one. I wonder if even Goodwill would want it. Probably not.
And all the bottles of half used lotions and shampoos that we keep because we might run out and need it.
There is so much stuff!
But you know, in life you have to let go of bad stuff to make room for good stuff. Whether its clutter, or food, or grudges, or limiting beliefs. You gotta get the garbage out to make room for the good things.
Spring cleaning is about more than just cleaning house. Its like a fresh start.
And since I don’t have a TV up here to take up my precious time- I’m going to take a walk, enjoy the beautiful weather, get some exercise, clear my head, relieve some stress, and maybe catch up with some people I haven’t seen all winter. Thats a pretty productive 40 minutes, wouldn’t you say?
Then I’ll come back and get back to work.
What’s taking up too much room in your life?
