The same common mistake

I don’t know if you know, but I was born in Iran into a very Iranian family.

And since I hit puberty, one of the things that that means for me is hair management.

What is hair management?

Well, it is the process of getting rid of hair on my body in places I don’t like to have hair on.


A good example for that are my eyebrows.

I have very bushy ones, so I have to be on top of it, which mean plucking them every morning.

Every. Morning.


I know what you’re thinking: “Nazanine, TMI. And get over yourself, that’s NOT that big of a deal”.

And you would be right, IF I was not making that one mistake almost every morning.

What mistake, you ask?

Well, almost EVERY day, I first put on my eye cream, and THEN I remember that I have to pluck my eyebrows.

Resulting of me spending an awful amount of time trying to pluck the world's slipperiest eyebrows.

So much fun….NOT.


Why do we tend to do the exact same mistakes over and over again?


It’s like when decluttering.


One of the mistakes I see people do all the time while decluttering is to take aaaageeeees to get rid of the things they have decided to let go.

Most of the time because they want to sell them.

So, the things are staying, until they eventually get sold. If at all.

Problem is, if you do not physically remove those items from your surrounding, you will never actually experience that liberating feeling of decluttering.

You just moved the clutter from point A to point B.

And, more often than not, point B is even more in your face than point A was, adding up to your stress.


That wasn’t the plan, was it?


So, if you want to actually sense the transformation in your home when going thought a home-detox, get rid of the items you discarded as fast as you can.


Until next time,

Nazanine
