HGTV has brought many idyllic views of the clutter free home. Marie Kondo, author of, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, has really inspired people to purge things that do not bring joy. We may have wanted it then, used it some, but over time it has become a dust collector and a space consumer. Even with the altruistic thoughts of donating items to pay it forward, why can it be so hard to follow through with decluttering? It can be fear, anxiety, guilt, overwhelm which can interfere with the desire! Here are some tips to help you move past the emotions and on with your spring clean.
Give yourself grace if you haven’t decluttered in some time. It may take several passes. A room can seem more spacious if bookshelves aren’t packed with stuff. If there isn’t a place for it, it isn’t a priority. Have the most used items easily accessible. That which is stored in boxes labeling them makes life easier. By letting go of items of the past, we can enjoy the present more!
The eyes of the Lord are upon those who love Him; He is their mighty shield and strong support… Sirach 34:16
