Clutter - Simplicity

"Out of clutter find simplicity; from discord find harmony; in the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." - Albert Einstein
Clutter = chaos and discord
Which comes first: chaos out of which comes discord or discord which creates chaos?
My house is cluttered; it wasn't this way the first several years I lived hear. It seems as I gained weight these last several (4-5 yrs) my house became more cluttered and messy. I strongly dislike both - the clutter in my house and in my body & mind. Which came first, I'm not sure.
I like Albert Einstein and when I read the above quote it reminded me that I can have simplicity and harmony in my life - body, mind, and home.
1) Today I walked with my puppy (at a good speed) approx. 35 minutes.
2) I also, spent 15 minutes hand-washing dishes, walking @ 2 ft from the sink to my kitchen table several times. (& 1 load in the dishwasher)
3) Cleaned up paper recycables and trash.
4) Cleaned bathroom sink
5) Two loads of laundry
I think this is a good "start" (restart) to achieving calmness and clearing out the clutter.
Praise God for the energy I had today.
