Clutter: Set your problems free…

I thought of you when I read this quote from “The Happiness Project: Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun” by Gretchen Rubin –

“First, I got rid of items that no one should be wearing anymore. Good-bye, baggy yoga pants . Next I pulled out the items that, realistically, I knew I wouldn’t wear. Good-bye, gray sweater that barely covered my navel. Then the culling got harder.”

Three levels of clutter clearing.

1. What is obvious.

2. What I currently ignore… for a reason.

3. What does not work … learning to release rather than fix a problem.

The simplest way to solve a problem is to let go of it. Set your problems free … let it go. Let them wander off to find a happier place.

Dealing with clinging parasite problems by detaching. Current reality is a win for them but not for you. Practice Win-Win Or No Deal.

Clarity and decision-making are often enough. Make sure that you understand the problem in great detail, because the problem may be you and not the item. If you understand the problem, you will become aware of it happening again and be able to prevent it from becoming established. Once you understand the problem you will understand how to detach yourself from the places where the problem attaches itself to you
