Create something special . . .

(word 20)

Our word this week . . . sense.

Does it make sense? Do you really need all that fabric? Those “fat” clothes? The incomplete projects in the closet?

It’s spring. Time to consider the non-sense cluttering your space. Piles talk, you know. And they don’t say nice things.

When you remove the old conversations, you make room for the new. That’s what California brush fires do naturally. Remove the underbrush to expose the tender new shoots to light and growth.

Make a plan. Look at the pile. What are the steps needed to remove? Write them down in 15 min action steps. Action is easier when no thinking is required.

Decide on a deadline. This pile/project must be done by ________, 2010. After that, will it be donated or trashed? Ask a friend or family member to hold you accountable. Put it in writing. Have them sign. The plan stays with the pile. This is a non-negotiable commitment, to you. A gift you give yourself.

Show up. (remember the hope)

Do the work. (remember the hope)

Then enjoy what springs forth!

(This system will work to clear out mental projects too.)

Custom work has always been in the back of my mind. You have a special word, special name, special date you want pressed into clay? I’m almost ready for them.

(Imagine how much easier Christmas could be.)

I love the way you think! It makes so much SENSE to me!
I am going to take your advice and begin to clear my convos- that’s a really good place to start. Everything always feels better when there is some space to breathe. Clutter does not encourage creativity.
Thank you, Lori.

Kendra, thanks for that! My convos need cleaning too. Another little project. Yes, space. We all need to breathe! xo
