I knew this day was coming. We had talked about it for months – relocating to be closer to family and set up a more permanent home base from which to work and travel from.
This time around I was determined not to wait until the last minute to start sorting, throwing, donating, selling and giving away things we no longer needed. To many times before I have moved things we no longer needed, reasoning that we should hold onto it “just in case.”
Most of the time “just in case” never happened and instead, we continued to store items and take up precious time and resources on things we no longer needed. Do you realize how much money and time is wasted on the “just in case” clutter in our homes? More than you can imagine.
So, several months ago I started spending 15-20 minutes – picked a drawer, a spot, a closet, a room – it didn’t really matter. I picked an area and just got started.
And that’s the key. Get started. We can tell ourselves all day long that we are going to start simplifying tomorrow and yet, as is always the case, tomorrow never comes. There is only today.
What it takes is putting feet to the road. Making a choice and taking action today.
Now that we are in the home stretch of relocating I am so glad that several months ago I made a decision to start – even if that meant starting small. Remember that often, slow and steady is what really wins the race.
What action will you take today to start Simplifying your life? What have you been putting off until tomorrow what you should be doing today?
Keeping it Simple,
