"Clutter represents unmade decisions."
We're too busy to go through the mail so it piles up...the kids' school papers sit, and then stack...we don't have the brain power to stay on top of things, and so it builds and becomes even more overwhelming.
Clearing the clutter is self-care! A cluttered physical space translates into a cluttered mental space. And....too much stuff can hold you back!
Think of clutter as stagnant energy that prevents you from creating the life you choose, desire and deserve.
Clutter comes in a variety of forms:
As challenging as it may seem to get rid of the junk...when we remove clutter from our lives we are free to discover our passions, and lead the extraordinary lives we are all meant to live and share our gifts with the world! We are literally clearing the space of things we no longer need or want, which allows more good things to come on in!
