In the News!
Last month I was asked to offer some decluttering advice for an article being written for the Post Bulletin’s Haven Magazine. At first my heart was racing! What would I say? What would be asked? Would I have the answers?
I was in that excited, yet fearful state, but I was curious enough to push ahead ahead & take the opportunity. I took some deep breaths & worked to silence those doubt-filled voices as the interview started.
I relaxed as I remembered the hours spent decluttering my own stuff, as well as, all of the books, classes, and advice that I have taken in these past 4 years. And I listened to the phrase that I have continued to share with you all about there being “no right way,” because I know that the desire to do it “right” can keep us small and stuck.
It was a great conversation and when it was all said and done I came away feeling anxious to see how this article might find it’s way out in the world. I know there are lots of articles offering advice, tips, and short-cuts, and you may have already read something similar to this piece- that is just great! But I also know that the decluttering journey is unique for each of us, so even if you have heard something similar before, you might not have been ready to take it in.
My hope is that wherever you are on your decluttering journey that you take it one step at a time, finding the “right” tips at the just the right time, pushing past those moments of fear to take your next step in the process.
Here’s the article! Happy reading!
