Organize into a new story.
I can hear you now as you start to purge, declutter and organize your home…
”Oh but my son wore that when…. Oh but my daughter made that for me…. Oh but my mother, but my father, but my best friend, my teacher, me……” or is it “I got that at the fair… I won that for…. I bought that when…I made that….”
There goes the story you keep telling yourself about every THING you just can’t seem to part with. It’s time to change the story. Give it new meaning, give it a new ending, give it a new feeling, give it a new energy.
“Oh that was my grandmothers she’d be so upset if I got rid of it and…” “Oh that’s from when I was in kindergarten…” “I won that in a contest in junior high for…”
GENTLE REMINDER : If you part with the “thing” you’ll still have the memory in your heart & your mind.
Today….release what you can, keep what you MUST. Begin to work through the barriers that keep you from being successful, that keep you from living fully and being prospering or barriers that simply keep you stuck. Organize the piles, files and to-do lists. Create new systems to keep things together. Begin a new habit of putting things where they go so you can find them when you need them. Purge, declutter, organize one drawer at a time, one closet at a time, one file at a time. Just be sure to begin. Begin somewhere today so tomorrow has less stress less chaos, less drama, less burdens. And for goodness sake when you hear the voice in your head go on and on about the What’s and Why’s and Who’s. STOP!
Let it go. Free yourself. Stand strong & breath. Tell yourself a new story.
Your God Girl,
