I just donated and disposed of almost all of my jewelry. My clothing is the smallest quantity its ever been too. But here’s the thing- I only kept that which sparked joy within me. I followed the advice of a brilliant author Marie Kondo, she wrote, ‘The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up’. I started asking myself awhile back what it would look and feel like to love my life and be really happy. What does it mean to love myself? For me, I need space and freedom and play. I am competitive and I love wisdom and connection. My overflowing clothing, office, jewelry boxes… Oh hell… All my homes as an adult have been bursting at the seams and restricting me with too much stuff. Loving my life looks like more space because there is less stuff. For years I would purge and then end up replacing or moving to smaller closets. I had to figure this out and I am happy to say that I did. Paradoxically when you let go of the outer and can let go of the inner baggage too. I had some of that stuff that needed to be let go of too.
I have so much more on this topic to share including some before and after pictures of all the transforming happening.
I can breathe so much deeper now…
