Throw Out Fifty Things
"Our lives are so filled with junk from the past - from dried-up tubes of glue to old grudges - that it's a wonder we can get up in the morning," exclaims motivator, best-selling author, columnist, and life coach Gail Blanke. "If you want to grow, you gotta let go," is Blanke's mantra; and that means eliminating all the clutter - physical and emotional - that holds you back, weighs you down, or just makes you feel bad about yourself. In THROW OUT FIFTY THINGS she takes us through each room of the house - from the attic to the garage - and even to the far reaches of our minds. Through poignant and humorous stories, she inspires us to get rid of the "life plaque" we've allowed to build-up there. That junk drawer (you know that drawer) in the kitchen? Empty it! Those old regrets? Throw 'em out! That make-up from your "old" look? Toss it! That relationship that depresses you? Dump it! Once you've hit fifty - you'll be surprised how easy it is to get there - and once you've thrown out that too-tight belt and too-small view of yourself, you'll be ready to step out into the clearing and into the next, and greatest, segment of your life.
Welcome to spring cleaning times 25! Gail Blanke has written a light, story-filled book coaching you through the process of clearing out all the unnecessary stuff/clutter/junk we all seem to have in our lives. She has sections on home, office, and personal mental clutter as well. The resource guide in the back of the book provides phone numbers and websites to contact for places to pass on, recycle, and donate the stuff that is still in good shape and needs a good home - just not YOUR home.
