I don’t know about you, but I love, love love to throw things out.
Ever since I had kids and the “stuff” that came along with them bombarded our living space, I have at long last embraced the bliss of exposing my inner hoarder.
I have been to the pulpit and made a full confession, as the guilty party who brought all that stuff into our home. Amen and hallelujah! I take accountability for my behaviour, and have taken a vow to change my ways.
Not surprisingly, other areas of my life became cluttered and disorganized including what is commonly referred to as mommy brain. But that is another post entirely.
Tip #4 – If you don’t love it, LOSE IT!
Visualize in your mind what space will like when the clutter is gone. See yourself working, living, inspired, focused and thriving in this space.
Create a back up of your older digital files and delete them from your hard drive.
Feng shui, innovative organization, enhanced productivity, call it whatever term moves you deep within your soul.
Just throw out that dusty old relic. Donate those fat pants you haven’t worn in years! Pay forward all those amazing books you know you will never read again and embrace how good losing what you don’t love feels.
When you put your energy into the good thing, you can’t not create more of it. Like attracts like.
The key is to visualize your work and your life exactly as you wish it were. When you visualize your desires, it draws more energy into the desire and momentum builds. Your creativity is ignited and your intention become crystal clear.
Losing what you don’t love makes it easier to clear out your space and really gut your dusty old belongings.
There is no room for sentimentalism here.
I have personally had to release old family heirlooms that I inherited that sat in a storage room, year after year with absolutely no chance of ever coming out to see the light of day.
As you go through your belongings, you will find treasures from days gone by; let them spark your imagination.
Why did you buy that dusty guitar all those years ago?
Perhaps it is time to sign up for some lessons. What about that old squash racket? Find a new partner and get back on the court.
Our old belongings can remind us that we have forgotten essential pieces of ourselves while we got busy making a name for ourselves in life and love.
So surround yourself with the best of the best; this goes for decor, furniture and people. Let your desire for a life that you love guide you as you love it or lose it.
