The changing weather means that I’m sifting through my things again, deciding what’s still serving me and what’s just not. I’m asking, where have I let clutter creep back in? And why does it feel like there are eighty-five old tee shirts in this drawer?
I love the idea of curating–curating your space, curating your schedule, curating your life. Curating is just a fancy word for choosing and organizing, but it really is one of my favorite fancy words.
When you think of yourself as a curator, you approach your life from a place of interest and curiosity. You let go of what gets in your way, and you make more room for flourishing. See what I mean? Favorite fancy word.
That’s what we’re talking about at No Sidebar today. How do you curate a life you love? How do you even know where to start?
The things in your life are not a measure of your worth. A full calendar does not make you more important. Filling your life up with clutter and busy-ness is a distraction, one that keeps you from understanding who you really are and what you really need.
My things and my schedule serve me in lots of ways, but they can’t tell me who I am, and they don’t make me more worthy of love and connection.
