You might regularly declutter your home.
What about all the other ways you might declutter?
The disserving thoughts that clutter your mind.
The distractions that clutter your attention.
The toxic people that clutter your life.
“Clutter” isn’t limited to physical stuff.
Where else are you dealing with clutter?
What in your life is holding you back?
Keeping you from health and happiness?
What would your life look like without those things?
How free would you feel?
How much more energy would you have?
What kind of space could you create?
This kind of decluttering isn’t easy.
We let this clutter into our life for a reason.
It serves some purpose, in some way.
Identify that purpose.
Ask yourself whether it’s worth the clutter.
Explore other ways you might fill that need.
Thank the clutter for serving its purpose.
Then let it go.
Move on with your life.
This might take patience and persistence.
Non-physical clutter is particularly challenging.
Getting rid of it might force us to face thoughts and emotions we’ve been avoiding.
That’s no small task.
It is worth it.
You’re worth it.
You’ve got this.
