Blue Monday, really? The 21st January 2019 was supposed to be the most depressing day of this year. How lovely that someone has seen the need to calculate this fact for us! However, if you, like me, follow the law of attraction, I would prefer to focus on the positive things rather than the negative and keep my mental health in check!
So, I thought “pooh” to that! Guess what a professional declutterer does in times of potential anxiety, and that’s what Blue Monday actually caused me, stupidly? She declutters herself. Yes, even a declutter gathers clutter and needs to keep it in check!
Everyone is talking about decluttering now… just the other day on Radio 4, over the weekend on BBC and even the uber-trendy Scott Mills on Radio 1 was talking about it today with many listeners phoning in. It’s this new trendy ‘thing’ and I think I know why, just as I said above, mental health issues are a big topic now and people are looking to find new ways to help them get through this thing called ‘life’.
Personally, I think of it as an artist with a blank canvas. No artist can start with a busy easel and lots of paint splashed over his canvas. He or she needs a blank canvas. I think it’s the same with having a clutter-free home. Not only that, clutter free changes the energy, it makes you feel more free and uplifted. Once my home is calm I also feel calm, and then whatever life chucks at me is dealt with from a calm place. Let’s face it, it’s actually really nice to know where everything is for a start!
Apart from that, decluttering is a word that can be connected to more than physical possessions. How about letting go of some of those memories from the past that no longer serve you? Those memories are often linked to the items you are storing away for a rainy day.
Are you ready to let go or know someone who may need help? The key is finding the right person to help you! Someone who is understanding and patient and who knows the feelings involved with letting go as they had their own fair share of ups and downs in life but are still standing. I don’t come with a skip, however, I do come with a sense of what needs to be done and oodles of empathy.
