|It brings joy to see the clutter leave your home. |
It brings a sense of accomplishment and peace.
This week, the dining room is my zone to work for 15 minutes a day. Here are some of the things that are leaving my house from the dining table and my closet. When I finish, I will show you the before and the after pictures on Facebook.
57 Items decluttered in 2014
It's not pretty, is it?
I am not a hoarder, but I am sure this is how it begins. Layer upon layer of items that may have been useful or meaningful at one time gather on the table. They fall on the floor or get put in boxes and bags, until there is no room. It is dangerous and unhealthy when people get to the point they cannot clean the floor or the table. Clutter, dirt, and grime cover the house flowing from room to room. You cannot find anything, because there is no room left; so, you go out and buy more.
Have you ever watched the shows about hoarding? If you are easily stressed, do not do it. But, do start de-cluttering one, two, or three items at a time. It feels good to be rid of the clutter. If you need help, get a therapist that can help you to work through getting rid of things. And, even though you may feel uncomfortable about asking good friends or family to help, let them. I know it is hard, but it is not shameful to let someone help you, especially when you are dealing with chronic illness and fatigue. God bless you.

Father-God, I pray that you will bless and help the readers of this blog. Help them find a way to change their lives by getting rid of the clutter that only makes life more difficult. You know their needs. I pray they will open their hearts and lives to letting You help them and letting other people help them. Lord, I pray you will send the right people for those that need it -- people that will help and bless their lives. I do not know all their needs, but You do. I trust you, and I pray that Your will be done. In Christ's name I pray, Amen.
