Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a good weekend ❤
Today’s post is a reply of some sort to a video I saw about minimalism and clutter. What would my clutter say about me? OMG. The thought of it alone is too much sometimes.
As Ronald said in his video, people in our life that love us… Mostly if not totally will say kind and wonderful things about us, but clutter will never lie and clutter will tell the honest truth even if it’s the last thing I want to hear, hehe. Btw, you should really watch his videos they are so informative and fun to watch 🙂
As I go through our belongings and sort our things of what to keep, donate or throw away, I see how it slowly changes my thoughts about our ‘Stuff’ but I never gave a thought of what the clutter could say about me, but I think that in my heart I knew.
So here are a few things Clutter would say about me if he could, lol:
- I am trying to please people and not myself.
- I try to live someone’s else’s life.
- I buy too many things I don’t really love or need when I’m too stressed and overwhelmed.
- I use clutter as some sort of protection (now this was a huge wow moment for me as I wrote it down in my journal… HUGE).
After realizing these things and understanding that I don’t want these things to be said about me, even if they are the truth of some sort, I still need this to change. I now have a better understanding of how clutter represents me and how I want my life to be.
This clutter that surrounds us all in some form is just another coping mechanism to the stuff that happens to us if its stress or sadness or any negative feeling we might feel. Even by just understanding this little bit already helps to put things in a better perspective and that leads to a better understanding of what I want to accomplish by decluttering this or that room. It makes things much easier to remove the items I kept holding onto “just in case” and move forward to the life I want for myself and for my family.
Anyways, just some random thoughts I wanted to share with you in this short post.
What your clutter would say about you?
As always, thank you so much for reading ❤
