Decluttering and Letting Go. If you didn’t get a chance to do some spring cleaning or decluttering, in your home or your life, maybe this point in the early summer season would be a good time to start! It might be a good time to “put off putting things off” – in other words, overcome procrastination and make a clean sweep, literally and figuratively!
This is what hubby Dave and I have been working on over the past couple of weeks, since we acquired extra possessions following Dave’s brother’s death. We already have a small house and lots of stuff crammed into it; in order to make room for some of the sentimental and practical items Dave acquired from his brother’s belongings, we had to let others things go.
Here are some inspirational thoughts for this Saturday…
“Have you ever gone on a cleaning rampage
to straighten up your home or office?
Did you enjoy pitching junk, straightening objects,
and organizing materials so that
you could find them when you need them?
You may need to get on a a Holy Ghost rampage
and do the same thing with your life.
Say, ‘I’ve had enough bondage.
I’ve had enough negative thoughts.
I’ve had enough lies of the devil.
I’m not going to be discouraged,
depressed, or despondent.
I am going to enjoy my life!’
Jesus is ready to help you live life to the fullest!”
–Joyce Meyer in “Starting Your Day Right”
I know I certainly need to do this literally, continue with my decluttering, cleaning, and reorganizing. Clutter in my physical spaces is much too rampant and visible in nearly every photo I look at of pictures taken in our home. Clutter in my emotional, mental, and spiritual “spaces” could also use some dedicated cleaning, sorting, and reorganizing!
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Are you an organized person, so you find it easy to keep things neat and “a place for everything and everything in its place”?
Or can you relate to this need to do some decluttering and reorganizing in various areas of your life?
