This can be a big thank you to someone who mentored you or helped you through a difficult patch. Even if you’ve thanked them before, you can do so again, if you still feel the influence of their assistance.
You can also thank someone who has done something for you recently. “Did I thank you for _____?”
I know, this task isn’t about getting rid of something. However, it is a good reminder that we don’t have to view decluttering only as the process of eliminating things and tasks but as the process of deciding what we want to keep. Thanking someone is a reminder that there are people we want to cherish and keep in our lives.
And, so, I’d like to thank you for subscribing to A Year of Decluttering. Whether you joined yesterday or on January 1, I appreciate that you’ve welcomed me into your inbox and I hope that this gentler process of decluttering has helped you find space in your home and in your life for the things that matter the most.
