Clear the Way

I'm getting ready to sell my house and am preparing to declutter as soon as I get home. (I'm on my fourth week of being 1300 miles from home.) I came across the perfect passage in a book I'm reading (interesting how often that happens, isn't it?). Here are questions to ask yourself when going through the chaos in your home:

"Seven 'Clear the Way' Questions

  1. Do I love it?
  2. Do I need it?
  3. Does it support who I am now in my life?
  4. Does it act as an environmental affirmation for me?
  5. What positive and/or negative thoughts, memories, or emotions do I associate with it?
  6. Does it need to be fixed or repaired, and am I willing to do so now?
  7. If it's time to let it go, am I going to sell, lend, or give it away, and when?"

  1. I actually keep a notebook with all of those perfect passages in them! There are so many, and I never remember them otherwise.. :)


Say what's on your mind!
