Your Closets, Your Clutter, and Your Cognitions

Organizer Regina Leeds tells all!

This is a great article and something that I feel will inspire all of us to get rid of stuff that is in our environments that we just don’t need.   You don’t have to necessarily get rid of it but it does not have to be in your daily space or view.

In order for me to be productive and work on multiple projects, I must have a clean organized environment.    It makes my world feel better.

This article and the previous video I posted on clutter is making me think about my junk draw and any draw that I have that is messy.   I want to take baby steps in decluttering.   Join me!

If you have a pretty dress or a nice piece of clothing that someone else could use, let it go.

There is a sense of relief in our minds when we are organized and so for me that is what is driving my research on how the mind is affected by the clutter around us.

How to practice shifting your thoughts

The meaning of life is made, not found. Dr. Robert Holden asks us to reconsider the meaning we place on life events.


This is a great article but what I liked about it the most is this paragraph.
-Rosemary

“The meaning of life is not a search—it is a choice. Meaning is not found in things; meaning is what you make of things. The world means nothing by itself. You give it all the meaning it has. Thus, the meaning of life is a choice you make, not just once, but every waking hour of your day. 

Life is like art—it is all about interpretation. The moment anything happens to you, you interpret a meaning for it. The meaning you vote for then governs your perception, your thinking, your faith, your choices, your feelings, your behaviors, everything! Whenever you elect a new meaning, this changes everything. Here is a great key to healing and success.

 An event occurs, and it is your interpretation and meaning that decide everything thereafter. “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so,” wrote Shakespeare.”
