It was good to have the motivation to do a full clean on my home over the last week. I think it’s the first intentional cleaning and de-junking I’ve ever done. My life has been a series of jumps from one place to another, from birth basically. I’ve never been allowed attachments to things or belongings. While I cleaned, I imagined what things I’d like to have – new furniture for the living room, more bookshelves, more teapots and chickens for my collections. It was far from easy at the beginning, but as I let go of the dirt and the grime and junk in my mind and my heart and my house, it opened up room for dreams and plans for the future.
