It all started with the new desks we bought at IKEA yesterday. After assembling them and setting them up I realized how much we could get rid of....a bookshelf, a coffee table, a desk, a small table and chairs, a double drawer system and various other things.
In the process of emptying drawers and cabinets, we made a BIG mess. Thankfully I'm one of those weird people that has to clean up the big mess the same day, so the mess has already come and gone.
But I was reminded of how sometimes we have to go through the mess - the uncomfortable - the unknown - to get to what we really want. Even when it comes to simplifying.
We want to simplify to get rid of the chaos. But the simplifying itself can cause some chaos. I went through my mess one item at a time today and eventually got through it all.
One item - one step at a time - we can get there.
