Last week I was asked to share an info-graphic with my readers, I often receive such requests and usually they are a little off topic, however, this one is definitely relevant. Josh from SpareFoot sent the info-graphic which refers to 15 reasons why you should clear out clutter. Reasons 2 and 3 are literally screaming at me as my mothers estate clutters my home and fills my 'soon to be office', from floor to ceiling. I am dealing with items one by one which is obviously takes time, I can hardly believe it's already been a year. I have given a lot to hospice, family and friends, some things have been sold and of course the majority I want to keep. Nevertheless I realise I have to be strong and actively sort things out, even if it means moving some to storage which I have avoided so far.
Point No. 3 "I can clear my mind", Gosh!, I can definitely identify with this feeling. I don't seem to be able to focus properly and constantly flit from one thing to another, even my friends have noticed this, not to mention, I haven't painted the past year and I still don't have an office organised. I have almost finished my guest room (still waiting for the blinds, long story!), hopefully I can post the 'reveal' next week. I feel great about clearing this room, I now have a lovely bedroom for friends and family to stay and already feeling 'lighter'. One more room to sort, my 'soon to be' office, I am sure, as soon as I clear this room and start decorating I will feel like a weight has been removed. No longer will I have to perch my computer precariously on my lap, I will have a 'working office' and be inspired not only to write more posts, but to actually put brush to canvas and hopefully complete my huge painting, 'Rhapsody in Spring'.
