There is always fallout when you are clearing out something. Piles in the transition are here and there. But it is still better than before you began. You feel the shift in your energy. The picture of what is possible emerges and makes dealing with the fallout easier to manage.
We all get to this point in different ways. I am often amazed at some people who can clear out a whole room or area in a couple of hours when it will take me twice as long. And whatever time it takes is OK.
There are many paths up the mountain. Give yourself permission to choose your own path.
