Taboo Tip Tuesday – Clear The Clutter!
My daughter and I made the trip to Michigan yet again over the Easter holiday weekend. Spending time with my family, seeing friends and breathing in that Michigan air that feeds my strength are always good justifications convincing me to put my butt in that car seat for another 20 hour ride. This time however I had one additional purpose…to clear out the storage unit I’ve paid for since my move to VA. Yes, I had a 10 x 4 foot unit housing the treasures I left behind and couldn’t fathom losing!
Really? After almost 4 years of surviving without those “treasures”, kept safe in a cozy little storage facility I decided it was time! If I hadn’t needed or missed them by now, I no longer did. So my daughter Lindsay, her boyfriend and I began the task of deciding what could be given away, what was trash (and there was plenty!) and what sentiment would not let me live without. It took several hours, a “three car filled” trip to St. Vincent De Paul donations and a load of junk to dispose of but….we accomplished our goal. I had only a few buried bits of gold I could not let go. One was the rocking chair that resided in the nursery of both girls.
Purging is a wonderful feeling! There is nothing that gives equal satisfaction and fulfillment to let go of things in ones life that weighs…pulling you into the past. Objects that may have once been precious but have no further purpose. My tip for today? Clear your space and your mind! It does wonders for the soul.
What are you willing to let go?
