“Clutter is not just physical stuff. It’s old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits. Clutter is anything that does not support your better self. “ — Eleanor Brown
We tend to think of “clutter” as the stuff that gathers in the bottom of closets, or takes up too much room on the shelves. How many times have you said, “We have to clean out this garage!” while your car is left to collect pollen and leaves in the driveway.
But I believe that other forms of clutter are even more important. The clutter in your mind that keeps you from thinking clearly. The clutter in your heart that keeps you from feeling compassion. The clutter in your relationships that are filled with things left unsaid, business left unfinished.
The good news is that you can start anywhere: Re-evaluate your relationship, meditate your way to a clear mind, or yardsale those boxes in the attic. No matter where you begin, you’ll feel better. Just begin.
