It's not you, it's me... Our relationship just isn't working anymore. You're beautiful and you have a lot to offer someone, just not me. So, as hard as this is, it's the end of the road for us. It's time to say goodbye...
I am doing it. Later is today! I am decluttering from the top of my house to it's very bottom. I am saying goodbye to the not-so-cherished and the cherished. I am only keeping that which has a definite purpose in my life.
I am getting rid of:
~Stuff I should have gotten rid of a long time ago.
~Stuff that I love but don't use.
~Stuff from the past that has no place in my life.
~Stuff I was afraid I might need someday.
~Stuff that still has value, that is not ripped or damaged, but just needs to go.
~Stuff people gave me that got packed away.
~Stuff I have too much of.
Here's the payment...I get a house that is loose, that has empty shelves or at least loose shelves. I get loose closets. I get a house that's easy to organize and clean. I lose a bunch of ball and chains that I've been dragging around. I lose weight off my shoulders.
I'll be able to move if God asks me to, and move quickly. I won't have to look back.
I'll be free...free of the love of stuff for stuff's sake. I'll be free of some coulda, woulda, shoulda...
(The pic is stuff from day #1. Today is Day #2 and we've easily doubled this. The White bags are for donation, the black bags are going to the dump. )
"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:13-14
