“The key to keeping your balance is knowing when you’ve lost it”. Anonymous
Have you lost your balance and you haven’t taken the time to find out? If you take the time to assess these areas of your life and see what is out of balance, you can take the steps necessary to get it back in balance. The changes maybe not happen overnight and the steps may not be easy but they are necessary steps to live a more purposeful, enjoyable and balanced life.
Where are you out of balance?
Clarity in Clutter???? How can anyone see or feel anything but overwhelm and a mess when they look at clutter??
Going through the de-clutter process can be very freeing. It is like a physical weight has been lifted off your body. While you go through your clutter, piece by piece, bit by bit, you become very clear about what you want to surround yourself with and what you value in your life.
Clutter clearing is an extremely psychological process and not only will the clutter clear physically but you will see clutter falling away emotionally. It is amazing the avenues that clutter clogs and the avenues that are opened up, in your physical space and in your mind, when that clutter is no longer around.
You don’t have to be clear about everything right now but the more action you take to clear the clutter from your space and mind, the more clarity you will have.
Do you want to know why you can’t attack that pile of paper? Why you can’t go through those boxes in the attic? Why you can’t seem to move forward in your life? Why you can’t end that relationship you know you need to end?
All of these actions require several decisions. The decision to take time to take care of it. The decision to press on through, even when it is difficult. The decision to see yourself as a person of worth, so you will surround yourself with what you truly value in your life. However, the biggest decision is to work through the fear.
The reason, we do not attack or make decisions about many things, is FEAR. Fear is ever present in the decision making process. We are afraid of letting go. We are afraid of getting rid of something we might need. We are afraid of being alone. We are afraid of making the wrong decision. We are afraid of change. We are afraid of success. We are afraid of failure. We are afraid of what other people will think of us. We are afraid we will upset someone. We are afraid we won’t do it just right.
Peel back the layers and at the root of many of your indecision, you will very possibly find fear. When you know what you are fighting, it is much easier to fight back.
