I’m eating the elephant one bite at a time! In case you’re worried about the effects that such a thing would have on my health, don’t worry! I’m actually feeling much better, now that I’ve started taking one bite at a time.
I’m talking about clearing clutter, of course! What did you think? How could you – I love elephants, but not that way!
Eating The Elephant One Bite At A Time
We inherited quite a bit of stuff from my parents. Some of it is things that we don’t need or just won’t use. I also tend to stock things like toiletries and stationery and sometimes can’t things when we need it urgently! There’s also a lot of e-clutter that I need to sort out. You know those things you download and plan to read later? 😉
Clutter can overwhelm us. So many of us put off clearing it, until it becomes a truly mammoth (haha…mammoth – elephant – get it? ) task. So I think this proverb is sane advice.
You must eat the elephant one bite at a time.Twi Proverb
I’m putting into practice what I’ve often read about. Rather than attempting to do one room, one cupboard, I’m learning to take one shelf, one drawer at a time and it’s working. Thanks for the inspiration, Cathy!
Clearing clutter is one of the choices I’ve made recently. Why do I think it’s important? Because I’m convinced of this:
If your house is full of stuff, all the blessings that could fill your house can’t get in. The stuff takes over. It robs you psychologically. You can’t be at peace. ~ Peter Walsh
Do you think it’s important to minimize the stuff we have? Do you have method in place for de-cluttering?
