You can always count on Oprah for some inspiration. I picked up the March issue of her magazine from the library. I was intrigued by the cover “De-Clutter your home”. So I got the magazine home, opened it up to the page and the article was gone! Someone had ripped it out. Annoying! So my motivation to clean was gone! Then yesterday when I was at yoga, I was sitting in the lounge and a book caught my attention. “Zen and your home” (something like that) So I flipped through and it talked about the importance of a clean and organized home. “A clean house is a clean mind”, also with organization comes focus and concentration. It also mentioned to know and use what you have. If you haven’t used it or wore it in the last 6 months,and it doesn’t hold real meaning to you, get rid of it.
I know this is a tough one for us girls! Our closets are near and dear to our hearts. But if we get rid of things, we can make room for more. Woo hoo.
So I have decided to start in the bedroom, with the clothes! I have cleared things out quite a few times, but I think I’m in need for another over haul. Maybe this time I’ll be a little less forgiving and actually get rid of stuff I don’t need.
I will show you an after as soon as this gets done, which I hope is soon!
And last but not least…an update on day 2 of my 7 day challenge. (if you are just tuning in, read post below) I hiked grouse this am. They were filming a tv show on the path. It may have been a reality show. I should have asked one of the camera guys. In the moment I was shy, but then I thought. WHY? Just ask, no big deal…SO because I was shy to ask, I cannot tell you what show it was…..ANYWAY. Now I am home, I am getting some work done and then I will fulfill my challenge by going to a 2pm yoga class. Just as much as I want to succeed, I want you to succeed. So thank you for inspiring me, so in turn, I can inspire some of you.
So between cleaning out my room and sticking to my challenge, plus my regular work, I have created a busy lil day! I will give you updates soon!!
Is it time for you to clean out your closet?
