This is a well worn phrase, often bandied about. I'll be considering how you can apply it to your living space.
Earlier this month I celebrated my 58th birthday in the most unusual circumstances. Despite my hopes, this Covid-19 situation meant that activity outside the home was still strictly limited. We made the best of it and I had a lovely day, but of course none of us quite knows when normality will return.
Birthdays are often a cause for reflection. Recently I've been thinking about the fact that every so often in life I've had some kind of clarion call to adjust my way of being. That's the best way I can describe it. I believe we are designed to change and evolve and that opportunities will present themselves if we are open to them. The way you lived ten years ago is unlikely to serve you now. Maybe the way you lived last year no longer serves you? How about last week? Only you will know.
Chronic anxiety was my default setting for most of my life. It took a long time for me to realise it, but yes, I was fuelled by fear. In 2015 it caught up with me in the form of adrenal exhaustion, a debilitating experience of extreme overwhelm.

The entire month of February seems dominated by Valentine's Day, don't you think? It's neatly placed at the mid-point of the month and let's face it, in the Northern hemisphere at any rate, we could all do with a bit of warm-hearted love this month!
What does this have to do with decluttering? Read on to find out.
Last month I visited a local WI group to deliver my 'Life changing decluttering' talk. As usual there was conversation afterwards about all things clutter. Two ladies mentioned that their clutter challenge was not exactly of their own making. The clutter they have at home doesn't belong to them! Does this sound familiar?
