Day Three: Declutter
“Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralysed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as you want and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realise that you can do whatever you want?”
Whether it is midnight or 6 o’clock in the morning before work, the time has come to throw out some stuff.
Our external worlds often mirror our internal dispositions.
When we hold onto stuff in our everyday environments, we tell ourselves subliminally that we are not worthy of a clean space and a great home space to thrive in.
What does your bedroom look like?
Are there piles of clothes that you can never get through?
Or is it the opposite?
Is it completely boring, plain and sterile?
Today is the day to start the transformation of your everyday space and to start throwing away, creating space for beauty, peace and reflection.
Today in Australia is Fathers Day, so one tip I have for decluttering, is to hang a bag on the back of your front door and over this week everytime you lay hands on something that is cluttering your space take it to the front door and at the end of the week take it to the op shop.
