There are so many times as a kid that my parents would call up the stairs for me to tidy my room. For me my room was my identity. I didn't care that my socks were on the floor or that the pile I had intentionally put in the laundry basket never quite fully made it. In fact they looked more like they were actually wild animals climbing out of the laundry basket. I think a lot about those times. And now, for me at least - I find it stressful. Waking up in the morning and seeing 'stuff'
SO for me, my journey to a clean mind has started with a desire to shred myself of all the excess. And I know, a lot of you feel the same too. Waking up and your house is a mess makes your morning complicated, frustrating and difficult.
HOME for the last year has been our tiny thatched cottage, the walls aren't straight, the floor isn't straight, but that is the charm of a house like this. For me, it is literally perfect! But there is one draw back - we have very little storage, and so it begins....
MY quest to free the little space we have has become important. To allow the calm that I know is here to permeate my morning and to provide me with the respite I need from my crazy job as a nurse. I spend time feeling tense, my shoulders seem to constantly creap around my ears and at times my teeth are clentched without me even being aware.
My mission - to free the house of the clutter and excess which is definitely not needed. I can declare that so far, I am winning the battle. Spare handbags have been culled. Excess clothing has been sorted. (Even the knicker draw is looking great), and what can I report? I do wake up calmer and more rested and I do relish the space which is available to my mind.
Do it - and do it today, trust me, you will thank me!
