Hi Folks ~ Here we are moving into spring and what better time to think about ‘decluttering’ our lives.
I've been wanting to get rid of clutter in my life for quite some time now, especially since losing my dear husband. Stuff just isn't important. Living a peaceful life is. We were working on getting rid of stuff before he went to his heavenly home, and now that I’ve started to really come out of the widow’s fog, I’ve really wanted to continue what we started.
I saw this book online, “Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui” by Karen Kingston.
Part of this books' title caught my eye, "Free Yourself from Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Clutter Forever".
This sounded like my kind of book.
I sent for the book and eagerly looked forward to reading it.
When I own a book, I like to underline thoughts that speak to me. While I'm not a follower of feng shui it is interesting and the following is my first underlining in this book. "Feng shui is the art of balancing and harmonizing the flow of natural energies in our surroundings to create beneficial effects in our lives."
Clutter does not make me feel balanced and in harmony. Just the opposite. I feel flustered when someone wants to come over, or drops in unannounced. I race around like a chicken with its' head cut off trying to make the place presentable, or if someone drops in unannounced, I make apologies for the way it looks.
This book really has lots of gems, or food for thought about clutter in our lives.
Here are some quotes:
"Clearing your clutter can completely transform your entire existence."
"Clutter drags your energy down and the longer you keep it, the more it will affect you. When you get rid of everything that has no real meaning or significance for you, you feel lighter in body, mind, and spirit."
"Clearing the clutter allows the fresh winds of inspiration to enter your home and your life."
"When you let things go, you either never need them again, or if you do, similar or better things will somehow turn up in your life at the right time."
"Clutter clearing in all its forms helps to restore clarity and simplicity."
I would recommend this book to anyone who needs encouragement and inspiration in the process of decluttering. The quotes posted here are just a few of the gems in this book.
I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.”
Have a wonderful weekend ~FlowerLady
