Letting Go of Stuff

Letting Go of Stuff

In the past few months I’ve been drawn to clean up and clear the clutter. I had done a lot when I moved in with my boyfriend last year, but was still holding on to things I thought I would sell, wear again, use for a special occasion, or just because I had spent money on those items (I was also holding on to what I really wanted to let go of ).

But the truth is I didn’t feel really good in 1/3 of the clothes in my closet. I had stop wearing a lot of makeup, preferring the feeling of a natural look. And I didn’t have the time, energy, and desire to do a garage sale.

So slowly, I’ve been purging one space at a time. I’m not done and will probably revisit those areas again, but it’s freeing . It feels good to share and give what no longer suits me, but might make someone else happy. And it feels good to ‘grow up’, to allow myself to enjoy a different style, one that reflect where and who I am now.

My challenge to you is to pick one space or room and really ask yourself how each item makes you feel. If it’s not joy, excitement, happiness, inspiration, etc. —> Let it go.

PS : You can make it more fun with a glass of wine (or your own special drink) and blasting some old tunes (good memories only tunes).

    Love this post, Amelie. I ran across one of my friends talking about getting rid of a lot of "stuff" the other night, to which I responded, "It's easy - give it all to me!" :-)

    Seriously, though, I am also getting rid of stuff. I think we collect so much because we haven't found "our thing" yet, and we don't feel quite fulfilled. However, I am NOT a minimalist, and I believe that there has got to be some middle ground.

    I'll never understand how Buddha taught the Middle Way, and a lot of the monks have adhered to a very aesthetic lifestyle. To me, that is not the middle way - it's just the opposite extreme.

    For now, I'm good with my Tarot decks and riding my motorcycle, and my books. Pretty much everything else can go. :-)

    I couldn't get rid of my oracle cards! I love ALL of them :-)
    Books have been difficult to clean up. The bookshelf will probably be the last space I clean!

    Great tunes make anything easier!!!! I'm actually working through my house, one room, one drawer, one shelf at a time. All the "purged" items go to the basement - in boxes - and next summer my husband will have a garage sale. I don't have the patience for a garage sale - but he LOVES chatting to all the people that stop by. So - it'a WIN-WIN for us! I get a clear house, he gets a fun summer weekend!
