Suppose you just purchased your dream house. It is all brand new, freshly painted. Vacant.
The space is clear and clean.
You start to fill this space with your old things.
An old couch that you hate with a broken leg.
A wobbly kitchen table. A television that only shows static. A torn, ugly, dirty rug.
Would your dream house still look like the space you’ve fantasized about?
Ive recently began to have this itch to clear my apartment of old things. All of those things that has served its time and are no longer serving me. I got rid of my son’s old rocking chair, a gift from his father that we no longer use. I got rid of the box of old Christmas decorations just sitting in my closet taking up space. I got rid of the broken necklace with my name on it, a gift from my ex. I have things that I have held onto for yearrrrrrrs.
I am an extremely sentimental person.
And one day I just got sick of the CLUTTER.
Why am I holding on to this picture of this person that gives me painful memories? Why am I holding on to this love letter from this guy I no longer love?
Why am I holding on to this chair I never sit in, this phone case I never use, these shoes I do not like (hoping they come back in style), this painting I never wanted. LET IT GO!
And then I did.
I let it go.
To make space
for new things, that I love.
That I value.
That serve me….
Making space isn’t just for your physical world. It s just as important to make space in your non-physical world.
Let go of those negative thoughts, anger and pain about your ex. Do you have space to hold on to those feelings? I know I don’t. I don’t have space to hate him because that would be taking up space from that new, tall, compassionate hottie that wants to walk into my life.
Let go of the gossiping. Do you have space in your life for gossip? That could be why you have no space to formulate new ideas and goals.
You have to make space for the things you desire, not time, but space. Don’t fill your house with junk. Get rid of it, trash it, give it to someone who needs it. Let it go.
Make space for your dream house.
