"Comparison is the thief of joy."
I didn't fill any bags yesterday for my 40 Days Project. I did read through all of the inspiration posts, though, and picked up some tips to share.
Number one is to be yourself. Authenticity. If you are doing your own 40 day/40 bag project, then what your house looks like at the end should make YOU happy. It's not about doing what everyone else is doing or having what everyone else has. We all have different schedules, different levels of busy, and different priorities and needs.
For me, it's easy enough to fall into the trap of looking too much out there, and not enough inside me. In fact, doing projects can be a distraction of its own, leading away from the intentionality I want to create. It's a slippery slope between inspiration and comparison.

My second favorite tip is how much good an old-fashioned cleaning can do to change your perspective about your house. I'll write more about that later...
Are you doing a 40 days/40 bags project? Have you started, or are you still planning like I am? Please share!
