Make Room in the New Year

This is the perfect time of year to get our homes in order. We made it through the holidays and now is the time to organize our homes.  Think about all the items we acquired over the holidays.  The presents that were given to us, the items we found when shopping for others and those other things that seem to have just appeared in our midst.  This is why I believe this is the perfect time to take a look at what we have, what  we need and what isn’t serving a purpose for us anymore.  As we take down the decorations and put things away until next year. We need to make sure that the items we are keeping, still serve a need for us.

This is the time to get rid of any broken, old or outdated decorations that we don’t use anymore. These may be items that don’t match our style or taste.  We have a tendency to hold onto things for “just in case” or “some day”. The chances we will reuse these items again are slim. It is better to pass these items on to someone else who will enjoy them just as much as we have.

Don’t stop at just your holiday decorations, but look at the other things in your home.  As you put away the new linens you received as a gift, now is the time to get rid of those old worn out towels.   Maybe it is clothing that needs to be cleared out. As you start to hang up your new shirt, look at what you can get rid of. Or it could be a new appliance in your kitchen.  Are there things on your counter that are not serving a purpose anymore, and it is time to donate them to a worthy organization ?

These are just simple things you can do to spruce up your home at this time of year. Nothing gives us a fresh start than some extra space. Wide open spaces allow us to flourish and helps us feel relaxed and at ease.  Now is the time to release these items and clear out the clutter in our lives.  Making room for the new energy to come into our lives, will enhance our living spaces.  We could all use some abundance, happiness and joy but how do we expect these things to come into out lives if we don’t make room for them? If there is no space how can we expect our dreams to come true in this New Year!
