Don’t take action

When you read about organizing, decluttering and simplifying are you taking action on any of it?

It’s actually fine if you aren’t. You can’t implement every blog post, idea or pin.

But, I see so many people guilting themselves that they should. They tell themselves they do need to create that elaborate all homemade birthday party. Or cook completely clean and gluten-free. Or organize the pantry with fancy labels just like on Pinterest.

What if you allowed these to simmer as ideas you may or may not do? You can keep them on Pinterest or in Evernote and not ever do them. Same with magazine articles – keep them or recycle them but don’t feel guilty about them.

You get to choose what you do and what you don’t do.

Breathe happily as you let those other expectations go.
