I’m eating the elephant one bite at a time!

You must eat the elephant one bite at a time.
– Twi proverb

In case you’re worried about the effects that such a thing would have on my health, don’t worry! I’m actually feeling much better, now that I’ve started taking one bite at a time……..

I’m talking about clearing clutter, of course! What did you think?  How could you – I love elephants…but not in that way……
Clutter can overwhelm us …and so we put off clearing it, until it becomes truly a mammoth (mammoth-elephant – get it?)  task.
So I’m putting into practice what I’ve often read about. Rather than attempting to do one room, one cupboard, I’m learning to take one shelf, one drawer at a time and it’s working.
Clearing clutter is one of the choices I’ve made recently. Why do I think it’s important. Because I’m convinced of this:

If your house is full of stuff, all the blessings that could fill your house can’t get in. The stuff takes over. It robs you psychologically. You can’t be at peace. ~ Peter Walsh

Do you think it’s important to minimize the stuff we have? Do you have method in place for de-cluttering?

May you be inspired – everyday!
