Let me be honest – I do not like my job, it just is not my passion and therefore when I am there, I am watching YouTube videos or reading up things that I see as helpful with what I am trying to do with my life. With that being said, I came across I don’t know how many videos about getting rid of old things in your house. Going a little deeper – items carry energy, so with getting rid of things that no longer serve me in the life I am trying to create, I am essentially getting rid of that energy to allow new (and better) things to come into my life.
So I went through all my clothes and got rid of a lot of things that have just been sitting in my closet. I even got rid of all those clothes that I know many people keep as a “well when I loose weight I will be able to fit into them”. I decided when I hit my goal this year I want all new clothes! Like I am going to be hitting a wonderful accomplishment for myself so why do I want to give myself old clothes as a reward? This idea never has crossed my mind before but all of a sudden it just made sense. HOWEVER! I did keep a smaller shirt and a pair of pants as a motivator/reminder of my goal but everything else went.
I even went through all my old paperwork or things that were shoved in a box due to multiple moves/never taking the time to organize it. I decided to throw out a big chunk of anxiety – that is the only way I can describe it. I was holding onto something that happened in my past and thought maybe it might be useful in the future. But with going on this self journey I am beginning to look at things through a different perspective and just a different mindset, so I knew it was time to get rid of it. I am telling you, I felt anxiety just holding this stuff and couldn’t even really read anything or look at it because of the feeling it gave me, so when I disposed of it I felt just a massive release. Out of everything I decluttered, that probably was the main thing I really needed to let go off and it felt awesome!
So, I really believe that for anyone who is reading this – this is your sign to go through your shit and get rid of anything and everything that no longer relates to the person you are/are trying to become. Mentally, it is just a great task for you to do. Even if you feel overwhelmed by the stuff you got pushed into a closet/stacked up/whatever, just do it – your future self will thank you!
