For the last two weeks I’ve been going through every drawer, cabinet and box in my house and gathering stuff that I don’t need or want for my upcoming garage sale on Friday.
Every morning I would decide what room I was going to go through that day and I would go from there. After awhile I could look at something and know whether I was going to keep it or not. It was a weird feeling. It was like my intuition was kicking in.
It’s exhausting going through every item and deciding if it should stay or go, but it is totally worth it. My drawers and cabinets are organized. It’s really nice to open a drawer or cabinet and be able to find what I need right away instead of having to dig through everything.
I look at my pile of garage sale stuff every time I go in the basement and smile. I’m proud of myself. It takes a lot of guts to do a massive purge. You never know if you may at some point need what you are letting go of. It’s a risk, but a good risk.
I feel lighter. I feel myself sometimes letting go of anger and sadness during the day. I just take a couple of deep breathes and let those emotions go. I know there are emotions attached to what I want to sell and it’s important to let them go.
I can feel myself moving in a different direction, but more about that later. I still have a couple of more cabinets to go through and stuff to mark before Friday.
I can’t wait to see what comes into my life after I let this stuff go.
I can’t wait to share this adventure with you.
