Clutter, wherever it exists, is overwhelming. It causes stress and anxiety. It feels insurmountable.
I often look around and wonder, “where should I start?” And in the past, the overwhelm would cause more procrastination.
It is this kind of thinking that has continued this vicious cycle of cluttered space, cluttered spirit.
Visualizing your goals is the first step to achieving them. In the past, I’ve typically focused on one goal at a time. I get consumed by something and then I neglect the other parts of my life. While it is important to create a plan and pursue your passions, it’s also important to find balance.
“I can’t do everything, but I can do something.”
And that is where I’m at. I can do something. Not everything, and not nothing. I’m working to quiet the black or white thinking within my head, and focusing on personal development, mindfulness, and living with intention.
I recently was introduced to the book, “Miracle Mornings” by Hal Elrod. I’m not here to tell you it has changed my life, because the truth is that I have just begun reading it, and I have yet to implement it. But the premise is that if you begin your mornings with intention and focus on personal development in small increments every day that it will overflow and affect every other area of your life. It’s promising, and something that I look forward to implementing into my morning routine.
Wake up 60 minutes earlier and devote 10 minutes to what he called Life S.A.V.E.R.S.
Silence: Quiet time devoted to reflection
Affirmation: Time for positive self talk
Visualization: Time to visualize your goals
Exercise: Time to invest in the health of your body
Reading: Gaining new insight or knowledge to implement into your life
Scribing: Journaling to empty the space in your head and put it down on paper.
The goal is to practice the Miracle Morning Life S.A.V.E.R.S, but to add one last step. 10 minutes of decluttering an area in my home. A drawer, a table, a cabinet, a shelf, a basket. And get rid of something every day.
The outcome is still to be determined. I am a work in progress. I may fall, but I will get back up. This journey is necessary for my growth. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve already begun the process of decluttering my home, and this has been extremely beneficial for my peace of mind.
So who’s with me? Who wants to commit to personal development, growth, and decluttering the home and the soul?
“We rise by lifting others.”
Together, we can make a difference.
Let’s live less out of habit, and more out of intent.
