One of the first steps in organizing isn't getting rid of stuff. It's clearing. Clearing a space within to work. It's important to start with this step because not only does it create a physical space, it also adjusts the mindspace.
Yesterday I received a couple of Feng Suii tips from a friend that really had an impact on me. (Kim Julen, Finding your Fiji). One of the tips was to create a clear and welcoming entryway. (The items in the entryway are on their way out the door). Clearing the entryway led me to clear another area. And then another. And then to take on the laundry with positive energy and enthusiasm. Yes, really! Are the areas perfect? No. And that's ok. They are simply ready for what comes next.
Clearing is an important step in every aspect of your life. Especially when you are going through a life transition. It's about clearing out what doesn't take priority anymore and advocating for what you need now. It's about preparing for what may be coming at you when you don't even know it's coming.
Today I challenge you to clear one area of your calendar or home. Then reward yourself on a job well done.
To Your Most Peaceful and Clear Self!
