Clean Up That Mess!

I've been crazy busy lately. It's funny how a teacher on a long summer vacation can never find enough time!

As a result, stuff is starting to pile up everywhere: next to the bed, in the kitchen, and especially on the desk.

And it's starting to get to me. I'm leaving for a six-day trip tomorrow, but as soon as I come back…

Ever hear of "Clutterers"? They are people who are fighting against the clutter in their lives. There's even a group called "Clutterers Anonymous," with a 12-step program similar to that of A.A.

They define clutter as "anything we don't need, want, or use that takes our time, energy or space, and destroys our serenity." Notice that: excess clutter cuts into happiness!

I know, cleaning up a mess is a pain. But when it's clean, it's clean!

What about that pile of wood next to the driveway? Or the papers shoved into that bookcase?

And do you dare consider cleaning out (gulp) the garage?

Just think how good it will feel to be able to walk without stepping over or around stuff.

So tidy up. Police the area. Get organized. And clean up that mess!

You'll be happier.
