The drums started beating, and then the wondrous thought came: "Even if I had, it would have been lost in the fire." And just like that, the regret rolled away. The fire became a line of demarcation; any mistakes I had made in my home were forgiven because all of it was gone. Do you know how liberating that is? The truth is, as you declutter, you will probably make mistakes. You will almost certainly get rid of things you'll later regret, but I'm here to tell you it's going to be all right. Don't let the fear of potential regrets get in the way of a new lightness and freedom.
