A Fresh Perspective: Declutter, Reflect, Reinvent

There are times when everything seems to go downhill. You are stressed, overwhelmed, worried, frustrated because nothing seems to go right. It could be due to anything: the clutter in your house, financial problems, debts, failed relationship, ailing health, a stressful job and so on. At times like these, we often lose hope and hit the rock bottom. Though it seems at the moment that everything is lost but we must understand that it’s just the start of a new beginning. This is the time for a fresh perspective.

The first thing to do is to declutter. Yes, it’s very essential to cut away from your life all those things which are not adding value or that is adding stress. Declutter your home and make it more organized. Take control of your finances and strive to be debt free. Cut back on the people and relationships which are no longer adding joy to your life. There is no point is holding on to people who fill you only with negativity. Take control of your diet and fitness routine to restore your health. A massive decluttering should be your priority when life goes downhill.
Another important thing is to reflect. Brooding over the past is not going to help. Instead reflect on the past to understand where you went wrong and what can be done to rectify the mistakes you did. Reflection is essential to make strategies for the future.
And finally comes the reinvention part. You have to reinvent yourself and your life in order to be stronger, wiser and happier. After coming out of sadness and misery, you have to reinvent yourself into a person who is radiating with confidence and joy.
Life is a series of ups and downs. But wise are the ones who don’t get bogged down by the challenges in life and take it in its stride. Challenges are a means to allow you a fresh perspective to life. They help you beautify and re-organize your life by decluttering, reflecting and reinventing yourself.

  1. Lovely post. I stink at decluttering, but it is wonderful when you do. We have to do that in our lives too (as you indicated). That feels great too when you take the time to do so.
