My grandmother always told me: Tidy Home, Tidy Mind

I am going through a transition period in my life, there have been rather quite a few difficulties thrown into my path which I have to stumble my way through.  Luckily, I can see the bigger picture as I know it is the universe’s way of clearing out the things or people not needed in my life.  Instead of trying to fight what is going on, I am doing my best to embrace it.  It is still very difficult at times, and to the point when I am wondering whether I am in fact managing at all, whether it is all in my head or whether I am just going slightly crazy.  However, most of the time I am coping rather well.

In embracing the changes and the good old ‘clear-out’ I have decided to clear out my home.  I have been inspired by the article above which I found on the Zen Habits blog, which I stumbled across whilst reading another blog about keeping true to yourself whilst writing for your blog.  Something I am trying very hard to do!  I am a believer things are put into your path for a reason.  I have been thinking my home is well over due a clear out and I even bought a book on Feng Shui the other day.  I feel like things are a little stagnant and need help moving along.  I have literally just found the article on Zen Habits minutes ago and I feel I have been led to it as a sign that my thoughts are correct.

My plan is to have a major clear out of all the things I no longer need or are not necessary in my life, and either donate to charity, take to the tip or sell.  I plan to use the money I make to put towards a holiday for my children and I in the Summer.  I feel we, as a family have culminated so much ‘stuff’ that our home feels full.  It is not a nice feeling and I always feel that in order to grow you need room! Besides, my grandma always told me “A tidy home, is a tidy mind!”

Are any of you having the same feelings and thoughts? I would love to hear about them, so that I do not feel like I am an isolated case (as when I mention this to my friends they look at me as if I have gone daft in the head!)

I will keep you updated on how this goes.  But I am determined to follow this through, and as I have a little time off work at the moment, I feel it is perfect timing.  As well as this, Spring is coming, and there is nothing more pleasing than a good old Spring clean!  Wish me luck! 🙂
