Question

You have probably been around toddlers and young children who question every single thing you do or say, right? Many of us can’t wait until they stop questioning us about every little thing; I am sorry to tell you this, but questioning everything is the first step to a new you. I don’t mean go around and ask your significant other, “Why is the sky blue?” I mean questioning your life, how you are living it, where you are going with it.

Examples:

Will going to college really help me with what I really want to do in life?

Why am I so unhappy with my job?

What can I do to make my life more exciting?

De-clutter

Next step to achieving a new you is, de-cluttering. I can bet about 80% of you reading this is surrounded by clutter and I bet 95% of you are looking at the clutter on your desk.

Clutter equals bad. The more cluttered you are, the harder it will be for you to get out of your current state and into a new one. My goal for you is to take a look around at all your clutter (ladies that means beyond your desk!) and ask yourself can you live without it? Do you absolutely need it? When was the last time you even used it? If it is still in the original packing, then put it in your “get rid of ASAP box.”

Passionate

We all have things that we are passionate about. I don’t want to hear that you are not passionate about anything because I know you are. Now take out a piece of paper or open up a word document and jot down everything that you are passionate about. I don’t care how big or little your list is just write everything down.

Now take a look through your list and imagine what you could do with each of your passions you wrote down. Again, this will be different for everyone, but you catch my drift. Now write yet another list down of what you will do with your passions.

Now that you are questioning your life, you are clear of all clutter, and you have a list of what you truly want to do; I dare you to start working on your list of passions. Take time out of your busy schedule to do something you enjoy. You deserve this time and owe it to yourself.  You will soon see your mood change within the first couple of days.

    We’ve started the post holiday decluttering. Thankfully for the first time DH and I seem to be ready at the same time for this step. It helps to have some space to be able to see and process things more clearly.

    I am in the process of decluttering right now. I have way too many websites to keep up with and have come to the conclusions I don’t want to renew domains for things I am no longer using. Thankfully the 2 I am letting go of will merge with an existing site and there isn’t much of a loss since I did not have a huge following at either site.

    As for home life, I decluttered it once. My husband has a terrible issue of buying wants instead of needs so our basement looks like a thrift store again. Its so frustrating. Sadly its a bad habit he gets from his mother and father who led him to believe money was just money and it must grow on a tree.

    • I am glad that your decluttering is going great! Sometimes it is best to keep what we really like/want and get rid of the rest. Not to mention, you will have more time for yourself and doing what you really love.

      Chrystal, I think a lot of men are like that. They buy what they see and/or want and never use it. Hope you can find your happy medium with that.
