Your Clutter Free Journey

Take the first step on your Clutter Free Journey to living a beautiful, clutter free life! On your journey, you will examine your relationship with the stuff in your life and it's impact on your overall well-being. You will learn to make choices over what you invite into your home. The way we feel inside is directly reflected in our living spaces. In turn, our living spaces affect our internal well-being. By making small, steady changes in our living environment, we can change how we feel inside and make our homes a reflection of what is important to us.

German Proverb

Day 25 of 100

If you have been doing the Clutter Challenge you are ¼ through and at least 250 item lighter! Some of you may have moved beyond this amount and some may have fewer items. No matter where you are, you are closer to a decluttered home and life than you were 25 days ago! Congratulations! If you have slacked off, jump up back on the horse! You can do it , slow and steady! This brings us to today's post:

While waiting at the hospital for my routine mammogram (future posts to follow) I was leafing through a magazine. I love having to wait for say 15-20 minutes at a doctor/appointment. It is free, uninterrupted time, no phone ringing, no chores, no work to do and no one needing anything from me. I get to enjoy some “trashy” magazines and relax. During this “down time” I read a wonderful German Proverb that really spoke to me: “ Who begins too much, accomplishes little.”

Isn't this what we are trying to avoid, getting overwhelmed with too large a task and quitting! We have been decluttering, steady, daily, (with occasional inspirational days when you get on a decluttering high), but always returning and plugging on. Look at what you have accomplished the last 25 day! Think of the transformation over the next 75 that you will make in your life!

Keep on plugging on!
