Snow & Clutter
We’ve been busy digging out from underneath the snow…my husband more than me. In the meantime, everything else got put on hold while our entire town was shut down. As we were stuck inside for several days, I found myself looking around and made mental notes of how I want my space to be.
Everyone is still talking about decluttering, minimizing, the Marie Kondo method, and then some. They’ve spent the last several decades buying or collecting stuff and now think they can spend a few days or weeks and, POOF, it’s done! If I were to use a bell curve to graph consumerism, I think we hit the top of the curve and are now on the way down.
Missing A Simpler Time
People are sick of the clutter, the time it takes to care for it, how it affects them, and are now opting to simplify. After interviewing the people in my group, I learned that some could declutter and simplify much of their stuff and others have issues due to things such as illness, immobility, emotional aspects of the clutter itself, or what the clutter represents.
Decluttering is not a toss it, and it’s all good kind of situation. It’s hard work. It’s mental work. Sometimes it can be very emotional.
That’s why I’m working so hard on my book, Making Room for Happiness: Tips for Clearing Clutter. It’s taking me a while to research and get to the heart of the issues. In the meantime, I took those in The Busy Woman Facebook group through a weekly mastermind about the decluttering issues they face and their solutions.
Would you like to join us? It’s free coaching and support because life is better with friends.
Let me know by asking to join our Facebook group and telling me if you’d like to participate in the mastermind coaching or want a little moral support and fellowship (or all of the above). The only thing I ask is for you to join in the conversation.
I can’t wait to meet you!
