She said: "I'm stuck"
"What does that mean?"
"I don't know what to do next"
"Is that true?"
She went silent. When she came back, her voice was flavored with the upcoming tears: "Well, no. But I really don't want to do [that thing]. I want a different answer!"
Decluttering often brings on a sense of stuckness. But stuckness is never an experience of lacking the answers. It's more of a resistance to do what you know is calling you.
Next step/choice/decision is often uncomfortable, unknown, and challenging. It's often the very thing we've spent years avoiding, hiding, and denying.
But what we don't know is that it's also the very thing that will allow us to stretch, to grow, and to find the answers we're already deeply longing for.
Next time you're faced with a project of decluttering any part of your life, watch the thought of "I'm stuck" or " I don't know" come up.
It's your own resistance,
Welcome it, hold space for it, listen to it. Let it melt away and reveal that which you already know is right for you, next for you, calling you forth.
Listen to that.
