I recently saw an article on Oprah.com (authored by Oprah) about decluttering. I could really relate to her resolutions about decluttering other areas of your life not just related to physical stuff:
"-Relationship to self: good riddance to decisions that don't support self-care, self-value, and self-worth.
-Relationship to others: do the people in your life give you energy and encourage your personal growth, or block that growth with dysfunctional dynamics and outdated scripts? If they don't support you as a loving, open, free, and spontaneous being: Goodbye!
-Relationship to emotional life: out with stagnant patterns that no longer serve you.
-Relationship to work: not only reducing the "clutter" of paperwork, inefficiency, and overcommunication, but also striving to create a balanced workload and make your work invigorating, inspiring, collaborative, and empowering to others.
-Relationship to nature and play: seeing these as expressions of love and opportunities to fill your life with truth and joy."
All great words of advise for the Great Purge of 2010!
