Clearing the Clutter, and Clarity for the Mind
Decluttering and organizing our homes leads to decluttering and organizing our minds. It gives us mental space to think. One thing that I noticed at my own house is that if I am looking at too many things in different spaces, then I am unable to focus on what the task is at hand.
All of a sudden, I am thinking, "Why is that sitting there?" Wow, I have a sink full of dishes. There is so much trash on the floor. I seem to notice every little thing. Since my workspace is in the kitchen, I like to clean this area first. Then, my environment is clutter-free. My mind is ready for clarity, and free to allow the words to come.
A few weeks ago, my cousin decided to enlist my help in beginning her decluttering process so that she could feel free to work in her home office. We decided that this past Saturday would be a good day to start.
We were able to get the hallway closet and one of her two bedroom closets done. The way that I decided to tackle the hallway closet was to take everything out and create three piles: a donation pile, a garbage pile, and a keep pile. After emptying the whole closet, and creating all three piles, then I put everything in the keep pile back into the closet.
She had already gone through her belongings in the bedroom closet, so we didn't need to take everything out. I just needed to organize everything in this closet. We were working and listening to preaching and gospel music, which made the time go by pretty fast. Send me a message below on how you spent your simple, functional, grace-filled weekend. God bless!
