There is one thing that cancer has done for me which would be categorized in the positive zone.  I have this burning desire to clean out the clutter in my life and live more balanced and basic.  It seems to me, the more I de-clutter my surroundings the easier it is to actually breathe!  So, in my experience, clutter has a physical impact on my body.  Perhaps as the chemo clears my body of cancer cells, it will leach out into my material life and cause a clearing to appear there also.  Here is the bag of clothing I purged from my closet...I will donate them, so what I am done using, can still give someone else a good serving of usage.

And of course, the hangers I gained from such a radical purge, assures me that there will be no more searching for that allusive hanger while holding on to the piece of clothing fresh out of the dryer.

This is but one beautiful result of organizing.  Everything in its proper place and within easy reach. just keep it that way.  This is but a small piece of the larger picture.  In reality, the whole house needs to have a similar purge as my closet did today.  A daunting task, to say the least.  But, Rome wasn't built in a day...neither was this cluttered mess created in a day.  So it will be a process...and as I go along, I will share the unearthing of my home and all its surroundings.

I always find I can breath better when I declutter. Good for you for actually doing it.

Thanks, I got the great idea from my awesome sister. Big sisters always seem to know just what to say and do.
