We will spend a life accumulating clutter of the material kind, we will accumulate worry, negative self-talk and guilt, also known as ‘mental clutter.’
But all these things can become distractions after a while and can make us physically sick. When we learn to let go, we give ourselves more time to concentrate on the positive, as well as staying well in the process. When we simplify things, we will have inner peace.
It doesn’t stop there. When we carry mental clutter, we will begin to replace it with material clutter. When we let go of mental clutter, we will learn to let go of material clutter also. As a child, I had very little material worth, but in sincerity the simple life appealed to me more.
We must learn to let go of the material things, learn to let go of having to do things perfectly, say no without feeling guilty, focus on being positive and deal with negativity. We must learn to deal with issues before issues escalate into something bigger.
We must also spend more time with the people who lift and support us and who don’t bring us down. It is important to work on inner peace.
