TCOY Meet 365 Days of Decluttering Challenge

On February 18th, I completed my 365 Days of Decluttering Challenge. What an amazing journey that was, I'll tell you. If you've never heard of it, here is the basic premise of it from my blog:

Clutter comes in many forms--sometimes obvious and sometimes not. Physical clutter is obvious, although defining it is a personal opinion. Mental clutter manifests itself into visual clutter. When you purge the physical clutter, the mental clutter will follow it out the door!

We have challenged ourselves to declutter at least one item from our lives per day for the next year. We have accepted the 365 Days of Decluttering Challenge...Want to join us?

I didn't have much clutter in the grand scheme of things when deciding to commit myself to decluttering one item each day for 365 days. What I needed in my life was building the routine of doing something each day, so I chose decluttering. Decluttering is easy for me, because I have already done the major decluttering that has led me to FLY, and because I employ the "Do It Now" principle in my life. With the exception of paper clutter (my nemesis), I deal with much of my clutter in the moment.

But, decluttering doesn't end. We all consume. We all buy. And we all have the potential of letting clutter in the door or keeping it here when we get more stuff.

What Does This Have to Do With Taking Care of You, You Ask?
Simply put, any area of our life where we focus our awareness will grow us from the inside out. To that end, decluttering is a form of taking care of ourselves, believe it or not.

As decluttering topics come up that I think should be blogged, I'll add them to the 365 Days of Decluttering Challenge blog. They will be linked here, as well. If you feel this area of your life could use attention, please check out the posts.
