So you’ve started decluttering, using the strategies that work best for you.
You’re enthusiastic. You’re gaining momentum. Things are going well.
But then something happens. Something derails you and you find it hard to get back on track.
You feel your enthusiasm waning.
There’s no doubt that keeping going with any new project can be hard. Making changes in our lives is not easy, even when you start with great intentions.
When I start to feel myself going off track I love to turn to the wisdom of others. I love quotes both as a source of inspiration to get started and motivation to keep going.
Living intentionally means persevering, even if it would be so much easier to give up. It means taking steps, no matter how small, towards the life you want to live.
So if you need some extra inspiration here are my 10 favourite decluttering quotes to inspire you into action.
