“But when we really delve into the reasons for why we can’t let something go, there are only two: an attachment to the past or a fear for the future.”
The book gives you guidance on how to remove the things in your surroundings that just create clutter and instead, how to fill your life with the things that energize you.
1. Look around in your living space and remove everything that belongs to the person you used to be; keep the things that belong to the person you are becoming.
2. Decluttering your environment also helps you to declutter your mind and focus on the things that energize you.
3. Only keep things that spark joy and fill your heart with warmth.
