each day I have been trying to learn about my stuff, how I see my stuff realistically, why I do what I do or don't do and their importance of my time.
The truths are hard to face, sometimes, for me. It's a hard process but I am glad I have a bit of time, right now, to work on this for myself and family.
blessed wrote that in last month's thread, and then went on to give some insight into the several categories in which she now sees clutter. Read about those on the 4th page of the May thread - some AHA moments there. Would it help you to try to figure out categories of your clutter?
By month's end, the thread was filling with insight. Harmony wrote:
I think we have to figure out in our minds why things are like they are. Will we not have any memories of things if they are tossed? I believe for the most part we will not forget. But things that are truly not important to us any more, we might move on and not think about any more. And that is good. Room in our homes and brains to live with new and consider new things.
I clean out because it gives me peace, time, and order. Order is very important to me. When I can't find something or if something takes me twice as long as it should I get very anxious and sometimes angry. ....
......Clearing out stuff leaves room for new spaces and times and new thoughts. That's what I want.
Do we have room in our brains to put up with the clutter in our homes? Or would we free up our minds and thought processes if we addressed the corners and closets in the house and freed them? What do you think?
