Dumpsters for Mental Clutter

Posted on

I am good at getting rid of physical clutter.  I like my surroundings to have some sense of order, and I have no problem throwing things away.  I am reading with interest “declutter” books by Netflix star and author Marie Kondo and the book on “order” by author Gretchen Rubin.

Grace, the Tabby cat,  also is particular about her space.  She does not like rope-made scratching posts, and she only wants a few toys.  She does have a preference for laying atop newspapers, but the papers must be changed every few days.

It’s mental clutter that I struggle with such as rejections, clients who treat you poorly,  judging others, envy, and people who try to draw you into their negativity.    I use prayer, meditation, being with real friends and physical exercise to help clear my mind; then it’s easier to create dumpsters to toss all the junk away.

Your Space: Paws Make the Difference

Although she still comes to  Brookland, DC periodically for a visit, Koko spends most of her time now at  her Philadephia residence with CCL.  The Philly townhouse does not provide much in terms of yard space but it does have a spacious basement where Koko seems quite content. After more cement was added,  Koko  put her own decorating touches on the floor of the basement in CCL’s  house.  HGTV take note!
