I’ve developed a deep attachment to every little knick-knack, quirky item, and well-read book in my home. The thought of parting with them grows increasingly difficult with each passing day. Each piece seems to hold a story, often awakening long-forgotten memories and emotions. Despite this sentimental attachment, I understand the importance of decluttering to make room for new experiences and items in our lives.


Just as I cherish my physical space, I place great value on my mental space. While I often find myself lost in memories and nostalgia, I prioritize my mental peace above all else. Decluttering your mind is just as crucial as tidying up your physical space. It can help alleviate stress, enhance focus, and improve overall mental well-being.


I’ve been meaning to incorporate more mindfulness practices into my daily routine, such as meditation, although I find it challenging to stay still for more than a few seconds! I believe that once I overcome this hurdle, meditation could greatly benefit my mental clarity and inner peace. Other activities like journaling and taking breaks from technology can also contribute to a clearer mind and a greater sense of calm.

When I first started writing songs, I was seeking to do just that. The strong urge to off load all my thoughts onto some other 'space' was extremely important. And almost all my earlier songs(though not all released), reflect this urgency and longing. She's Searching was the first song I wrote. Although I never understood it back then, its was definitely a call to 'declutter' and bring clarity amidst all the chaos.

I guess that's why I've started this blog. I have already been a serial daily 'walk-a-ton' enthusiast and I do my best thinking,  plotting, restructuring and brainstorming during these daily walks. While I can’t completely disconnect from social media due to work, I’ve found ways to manage its impact. Despite the challenges, I make a point to practice gratitude, which has become increasingly important to me. When I need to declutter my mind, I indulge in a horror movie on Netflix to escape the noise. My physical space is a work in progress, but I’m taking it one step at a time. I’ll eventually file away my memories and achieve a clutter-free space. I think I'll start with my collection of vinyls! How do you declutter and find clarity in your life?
