Creating Space For A New Chapter 09/03/2010
Today is the day of the yard sale. I sit on my back porch with my computer, getting some work done in between the thrifty shoppers.
I must admit, it feels lovely; letting go of all this stuff.
Certain items I have no attachment to & others are more difficult for me to let go of because of who gave me the item or who I associate the item with.
But does it make it any easier for me to live my life holding onto those sentimental items or do they weigh me down, simply by existing in the space in which I am trying to create the next chapter of my life? Do these items allow the flow of my energy to remain stagnant & out of date?
I feel that by letting go of all these things I hold on to, I am giving myself permission to move forward with my life. Living in gratitude for the past, but eager & excited for the future.
Giving away stuffed animals, old picture frames, blankets my grandmother made & concert t-shirts are a way for me give thanks for that experience in my life.
By letting these things go, I am not forgetting that they ever happened. The events, emotions & lessons will forever reside within my spirit. There is just no need for them to take up the space around me.
I truly believe they were hindering me from moving forward.
I am left here now feeling renewed, fresh and energized.
