..what could be seen as the negative sides to all this clutter clearing.
When the clutter is gone the need for some redecorating shows up more. On the other hand it will be easier to do without the clutter....
For people who really love shopping it must be tempting to start all over again.
So called 'clutter' could be a welcome distraction from some serious problems.
Kondo puts it thus -
When your room is clean and uncluttered you have no choice but to examine your inner state. You can see any issues you have been avoiding and are forced to deal with them.
When we honestly confront the things we own, they evoke many emotions within us.
For me this inner work, this 'dialogue with myself' is part of the reason for doing it, but I can see that might not be the case for everyone.
Is it right for you do you think?
Then, as some of you have hinted, there is the BIG scary question -
Who am I without my stuff?
Well I'm not getting rid of it all, so Scarlett like, I'll think about that tomorrow!
