A BIG WELCOME to our new e-community members--we are so happy you’re here!
Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking at the Warner Park Community Center and met so many amazing new people at our “Power of Decluttering” event.
This is Fil and I afterwards--she did a fabulous job organizing the event!
Your life can change in So Many Ways by letting the chaos/clutter go and making a plan to keep it gone. This is a wonderful time of year to start...
This year, Saturday, January 25, marks the Chinese New Year (referred to as the Lunar New Year globally because so many countries and cultures celebrate). It happens when the New Moon appears between Jan 21 and Feb 20.
It’s the YEAR of the RAT this year which symbolizes a flexible and open mind, good luck and prosperity in your career, as well as cleverness, creativity and fertility--this might be a good year for a baby (!) or the birth of a book, a fabulous new idea--anything that feels like a “labor of love” (Like FINALLY clearing out the basement, closets or garage :)
In Chinese culture, a New Year cleaning ritual is a really big deal--but it's just generally done before the first day of the New Year so that the good luck of the first few days of the celebration is not swept away.
Many people also use this time to repaint their homes, clear clutter and fix anything that's broken. (Ahem, yes, I was looking at you :)
I have a yearly ritual of clearing my office at this time--I seem to collect so many samples--tile, wallpaper, carpet, fabric from working with clients--they pile up and it always feels amazing to clear them out!
Do you have an idea of where you will start? Any hotspots calling your name? Email me and let me know what your first project will be--I would LOVE to know--and bonus points, send before and after pics, I would be so excited to cheer you on!
Lots of Love,
