Following on from last week’s post about my garden, I have been reflecting on ‘letting go’ and the metaphors that come up…
I had to let go of a lot of things whilst refurbishing the house and transforming the garden…things that were impractical, broken, no longer served a purpose.
I did a Feng Shui course many years ago and learned about decluttering – I am really good at decluttering and I know how to ‘evaluate things’ and let go of what I no longer need.
Even though I can already do this well, last week I started reading “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up – the Japanese art of decluttering and organising” by Marie Kondo…how interesting that I would start reading this, even though I am already pretty good at decluttering and being organised.
I have been getting a lot of messages recently about letting go and I am curious to know what else I could usefully let go of, that is impractical, broken or no longer serving me?
…So I will continue to read this book, because I suspect, in there somewhere, is a little gem that will turn a key for me and shed some light on what REALLY could do with some decluttering and organising in my life…and I also suspect it will have very little to do with tidy shelves and neatly folded clothes.
