Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Ohio:

I'm seeing firsthand now-- how trauma can get hoarding started. Having my own clutter visually present with sloooowwww cleanup in progress is helpful in erasing the images in my mind of how I found it all trashed.... it's very tempting to leave my gorgeously colored, clean and well-folded linens on display, instead of putting them away for use another day. Ditto kitchen and other misc stuff.

I'm putting it away-- but it's very interesting noticing the resistance. It's not the same as procrastinating putting the clean clothes away, and it's not the pain of my back. I just want to be surrounded by my own pretty stuff, and I'm having to remind myself of my goals for am open and uncluttered home that welcomes new friends-- you know, the human beans I suddenly do not trust at all. ;-)

Weird planet, this!
