DE-Cluttering your world

flyladyI happened upon “fly lady” recently and appreciated her simple and methodical process for de-cluttering. Her suggestions are intended for our space, our stuff. As I read the simple steps and her process, it occurred to me that this same process is very beneficial when applied to our thoughts.

I offer my version of her process (applied to our thoughts) here:

NOTE: Adapted from FlyLady’s process … for de-cluttering thoughts

Ask yourself the ...

Color, Sepia or Black & White?

68-Pier-SepiaA question attached to this image reads, “where are opportunities to bring color into your life?” The question could imply that color is preferable than the tone of the picture. Considering that brought to mind how we are so quick to put things in buckets, attach labels and make columns.

A few other questions surfaced for me. Where are the places I WANT color ...

Thriving

36-Dog and Dog StatueI declared several years ago that I want to “THRIVE” not merely “survive!  I chose this image recently and the accompanying question “how big are you showing up?”  It was a significant reminder of my declaration … and my desire … to “THRIVE”.    In the process of evaluating thriving or surviving, I was able to state that I was clearly ...

Ebbs and Flows

15-Ocean Ebb at Night-ACWhere are you in the ebb and flow of living? As you ponder that question, what emotion surges?

Unclutter While Alive

JWHage20In the last year of my mother’s life she changed her lifelong habit of saving “everything”. Mother was a “clutter queen” but not a hoarder, bless her soul. She even began to give things away to the 3 of her children and others. I remember in the last few months she was saying things like, “I don’t need all these things.” (Mother was such a lady she would never say “stuff”.) ...

Avoiding Packing Clutter

suitcaseAre you traveling for the holidays? Do you have a problem making decisions about how much clothing and accessories to pack? I used to until I tried a simple trick because I was limited to one suitcase and was forced to make some hard choices. I placed my clothes on the bed. Then I looked at each item with my hand on my heart. I let my heart tell me which ...

The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer

unearthed soluMy book club read Michael Singer’s The Untethered Soul last spring. I now recommend it all the time. One of the things that spoke to me was about how I can hold onto something… like a story and keep it in my heart where it does not serve. Singer’s idea is the idea of let the emotions, good or bad, flow through ...

Thoughts Can Clutter Too

beating heartLast week I received a text from my son saying his friend had just received some very bad news and was in crisis. He was leaving work early to be with her. I can be over empathetic and take on the emotions of others too easily. The rest of the day I kept reliving the story and feeling her emotions. That night I awakened several times and immediately relived the ...
