It's Not You, It's Me...

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...

Join me??

(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


  1. You have inspired me to go back thru my own house! 2 boxes so far! Tonight after the kids go to bed I'm headed into the toy room to be ruthless!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. :) It's just like opening the mailbox and seeing mail from a friend!
