One of the hardest things in life is to let go.
Letting go of old habits.
Letting go of all of your kids art projects & drawings
(every grade, every year, every child).
Letting go of the clothes that you know you will fit into when you get started on that fitness plan.
Letting go of the clothes that you might need if you have to stop the fitness plan.
Letting go of all those papers because with your luck, you could get audited.
Letting go of all the hobby stuff that you never had/have time for
(Creative Memories, sewing, etc.)
Letting go of the items you inherited, but didn't want or ask for, but keep out of guilt.
Letting go of those strange small appliances that take up all that great kitchen space, just in case.
Letting go of fear.
Letting go of toxic relationships.
Letting go of guilt and shame, as it seems like an old friend after awhile.
If we could let go of just 3 of these things that weigh us down or take up space we would have room for the those beautiful moments in life. The special people we want in our lives that we miss because our stress, our shame, and the time we spend worrying and moving around our physical and mental clutter keeps getting in the way.
