Is it just me? Or does everyone seem to be talking about decluttering this year? It seems to be the theme in my circles and I think I’ve caught the bug.
2018 stretches out before me like a long summer day, full of promise to be great. But what I know from experience is that the day goes by really fast and it probably isn’t going to go completely as planned. I have a heart and head full of ideas for this year and decluttering is exactly what I need.
I’m starting a 21-day food thing next week. I’ve got my entire family on board, 🤷♀️ except maybe my husband. No meat, dairy, sugar or processed foods. The processed foods part will be easy for us, we hardly eat those anyway, but meat, dairy and sugar though, it’s gonna be a wake-up call for all of us. We are giving our bodies a break and allowing our digestive systems to relax and reset.
Relax and reset.
Isn’t that what we all need after the holiday season? It feels so right to be going through this season purging the unnecessary, cleansing and resetting intentions.
For some reason, my kitchen feels like I have a hundred things I don’t need. I think this is my brain getting in on the cleanse and waking my heart to join in.
My kitchen is the heart of our home. Start in the heart. ALWAYS
I am dedicating this week to simplifying my home, one room at a time, letting go of all the clutter. Just thinking about it excites me and makes me want to get out of bed in the morning. I feel lighter already. I’m freeing up space in my house and my brain thanks me. Seriously, I feel more clear minded, focused and creative already.
As we move from room to room, there are things I haven’t touched in months and then others that are distractions that we just don’t need anymore. There is a time and a purpose for everything. Some things are past their time and have fulfilled their purpose and it’s time to let them go.
Some boxes it’s best if I don’t even open. As I let go of things, turn my head and tell my daughters to just take it away, don’t let me see it, we don’t need it, my heart speaks loud and clear, yes, some clutter is best left unopened before you put it in the trash, and put it in the trash you must. To move forward you have to let go of what is holding you back. Clutter pulls us down into the mire and trips us up every time. Let it all go. Be free.
This speaks to my 44-year-old heart on so many levels. By the time you’re my age, you’ve accumulated a lot of stuff.
Here’s to hard things and small victories and letting go of what’s pulling us down. Decluttering our souls to prosper in the year ahead. Setting our intentions and going for it.
We shall reap if we sow.
All my love, always,
