First, I would like to publicly thank Gail for writing this book. I have learned more about uncluttering my home and mind in the past week than in all my life previously. You have given me the tools to let go of junk and indecision. Thank you.
Second, as I have been reading through the book, I have found all sorts of emotions and ideas locked in my thinking that I didn't even know were there. Thoughts of not deserving my husband's and family's love. Thoughts of not being pretty to be worth the effort of looking good. Things that I would have denied thinking, had someone asked outright.
I have replaced these negative thoughts with thoughts that are true.
What caught me off guard, was the physical pain that accompanied most of these negative thoughts. Pain in my shoulders and back so intense that I could hardly find the negative thought. Boy am I glad for lamaze classes, that taught me to focus through the pain! Because, it was only by clearly identifying the thoughts and saying 'no' to them, by saying 'yes' to a new way of thinking, that the pain left.
