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.
