|Feather Duster for Spring Cleaning|
One of the things I am doing is organizing a chest that contains everything sentimental to me up until this point in my life. All of my pictures are shoved in a box. I'd like to make a scrapbook and eliminate some photos that don't really mean anything to me anymore. My prom dress and school uniform are in there too. I'm not sure why I'm keeping those things. I'm also working on a collage book of my dreams and goals. It's something I want to look at when I meditate.
I've already started purging more stuff too. You'll remember I got rid of a lot of stuff after reading, Throw Out Fifty Things: Clear the Clutter, Find Your Life and I challenged you to do the same thing. Many of you sent me e-mails telling me how your life feels so much more energized after doing that challenge. Now, let's see if we can rid of 50 more things this spring: negative beliefs, toxic people, clutter, clothes that you don't love or that don't fit, broken things that you don't plan on fixing, just everything that's holding you back.
SPRING CLEANING CHALLENGE 2011
- Get rid of stuff that's holding you back and keep a list. Aim for 50 things, but shoot for more. Groups of things only count as 1 items, so 100 magazines will only count as 1 thing on your list.
- If the clutter is in your mind, you can write each individual issue down on a piece of paper and destroy it. Replace it with a more positive belief in a journal, or a decorated notecard, get it framed or come up with a creative away to be reminded of your new positive belief.
- You will have 91 days to complete the challenge since June 20 is the last day of spring 2011. If 50 is too large a number for you to think about, think of it as getting rid of 1 thing every 2 days or 4 things per week or 16 things per month. Break everything down: do that junk drawer one week, your closet the next week, your hair products the week after and so on.
- Keep track of the positive things happening in your life now that you're releasing all the clutter and be sure to share: shoot me an e-mail once you've completed your mission.
