This appeals to me very much. There’s something so expansive about making room for what’s important to you.

I so agree with this one, Shilpa. With time, and maturity, I have been successful in decluttering quite a few ‘possessions’ physical and mental that have made me realise what truly matters, made me feel grateful for the few that I have and find peace in them. 🙂

This one is just what my heart and head would both agree with! I’ve learnt it the hard way but so glad that I realised the worth of the real possessions that matter the most. Thanks for the reminders again, Shilpa. We need them all the time.
