You organize to become more efficient. You shed to get unstuck!
Organizing gives you access to what’s most important to you. Shedding is a process for discovering what is most important to you.
It is possible to get organized without getting rid of anything. It’s impossible to shed without letting things go!
How to detect clutter: Does your closet feel stagnant? Does it make you feel guilty or overwhelmed or burdened? Does it deplete your energy?
~~J. Morgenstern [“The guru of putting lives in order”]
Cleaning up and organizing can inspire thoughts of a new way to look at your closet, room, or area and opens up a whole new path to change. Inspiration might be a room you see in a magazine or just one section of a room. How about a combination of colors that might inspire you? The use those colors in things that surround you. The bold colors of small appliances for your kitchen could start you thinking in a whole new way. Use your neutrals for the big things and bring “pop” into a room with new color. It could be nature’s blending of colors that can be the beginning of a whole new scheme. What you select is your own unique look which works with the way you live, work and play.
