This morning I listened to a podcast interviewing Filled with Less leader Molly Sanbourin and so much of what they talked about hit me on a deep level. What started for Ms. Sanbourin as a personal journey to de-clutter her home, became a movement to spruce up other avenues in her live. Working with a health coach and professional organizer she realized that they could help others who are drifting because their life, whether in the home, spiritually, mentally or medically, has become too congested to function.
When I sat down a few days ago to actually start the purging process, I was shocked I had 7,952 unread emails. Talk about a lot of junk.
Yesterday I started to tackle our office. This room not only acts as an office, but is a catch all room. If we don't know where to put something or don't have time to put things away they get tossed in this small room to be dealt with when the room gets overwhelmingly crowded and I decide it's time to do something about it. I gathered up all the loose papers, old mail and pulled out the filing cabinet and started sorting months of important papers, tossing the junk mail and creating a pile of things that need my attention.
