It’s the middle of January. You said you were going to get started clearing the clutter of your life.
We haul our stuff and our ideas from place to place because they’re hard to let go of and we can’t decide what to do with them. We say we keep things for sentimentality, for our children.

Start somewhere. But get started.
This is one step that’s about as simple as ABC.
