Dear Diary….Day 1….The Last Day….of the 27 things for 27 days Feng Shui challenge….


For the last 27 days I have worked on eliminating 27 things each day.

Whether I moved it, threw it away, donated it, cleaned it, or sold it, I worked with faith in the Great Unknown.  As I cleared unwanted things from my life, I also cleared some emotional ties to some things.

The day after I cleared and organized my Fame and Reputation area, I received a text from a friend that her company was hiring.

After 3 interviews I received a call that their store had been flooded during one of our big rain storms.

I still continued to declutter, even making some sales to help things along.

I was beginning to get discouraged when it seemed as though things were not going my way.

But my direction was to finish up some things that I’d started, so today I finished hanging the curtains in my bedroom, painted a lamp I’m upcycling, organized my storage unit, and just for good measure, I washed the front door, the threshold, and the walkway leading up to my house to welcome new opportunities.


Well, just before bed, I checked my email and there was an email from the owner of the store where I had applied for a job, asking if I was still interested in the position!  Well, Yeeeesssss!

Cottage Mavens,

My wish for you is that even though this process of letting go has not always been easy, that you were able to gain more clarity, a deeper understanding of self, and a realization of how holding on to things, or even people that no longer (serve us), or not wanting to sound too harsh, lend their energy to our existence, can only block us from what is truly ours.

Just before I wrote this, I was having doubts that what results I had to share with you would not be enough to encourage you, or to convince you that this whole process of decluttering with purpose has any value.  And yes, I have stretched it out a couple of extra days because I really wanted to be able to prove to myself that this works and that I’m not just making this stuff up.

In Nature, we cannot rush the river.  So, too, we cannot determine Divine timing for our lives, but only affirm, that My Life is in Divine Order, and trust the flow.

I have done this enough times to know that our lives are meant to be lived as a series of miracles and synchronicities

What I have in store for you are more practical ways of working with the Divine in your life to bring more prosperity, more health and well-being, and more miracles as every day occurences in your life.

My deep and heart felt thanks to all of you.

Please leave a comment to let me know how you have fared on this quest and if you would like to try it again in the near future?

By now, the 28th day has passed, and I am continuing to clear my space on a second go-around starting with my storage unit.  I have been selling the items and letting go of some of the things that I was holding onto for “someday”.

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.

  1. What a wonderful end to the process with the job offer, congratulations. And I’m sure it’s not really the end of your decluttering. Somehow I think that will be ongoing.Good for you.
