I reached my goal of letting go of 150 items!!!
Yeah for me!
I didn’t know what to expect when I started this journey. I didn’t know how I would feel or what to do or how to do it. I didn’t know the direction I wanted to go in. All I knew is that I wanted to get rid of stuff.
So I just started.
I’m glad I did becaus the benefits have been amazing. I feel lighter. I’m more organized. It’s easier to let go of stuff. Intuitively I know if I need something or if I can let it go. It’s nice to open up cabinets or closets and see neat and organized shelves. It’s easier to find stuff. My mind is clearer. My creativity flows easier. I’m happier.
I feel like I’m beginning to get to know the real me. The me that was hidden underneath all of that stuff. The thing I didn’t even realize I had all of that stuff. I was interested in making cards so I bought things. I really didn’t have a lot of time to experiment with this so I put it in the corner until I had time. The sad thing is the things i bought sat in a corner because I never found the time. I did make some cards but I found that it really doesnt interest me anymore so I ended up selling what I bought.
I found myself giving up some of my someday stuff. I would rather concentrate on other things. I feel letting go of that stuff has opened up room for what I really want to do or opportunities to come in. I dont have to feel bad anymore because I never used the stuff. Hopefully someone else is using it and enjoying it.
I’ve learned that sometimes taking the first step is the most important step. So what if you dont know what to do or how to do it. You can learn along the way.
Today my goal is to let go of another 150 items. My house is about 30% gone through. This goal shouldn’t be too hard to achieve.
Here’s to the next 150 items!
