I have a new habit: Getting rid of everything we do not love or use often.
It is so liberating. I am letting go. Letting go of stuff we do not need. Letting go of guilt. Letting go of the idea that I have to hold on to things just because someone I care about gave them to me. It feels so good. I feel lighter, more free. So much stuff that we have kept over the years, hauled with us from house to house, is stuff we do not use. It stays in its boxes, or we worry about where to store it. I am so relieved to let it all go.
Bag by bag our belongings are leaving our house. When I have finished this sort through we will be left with just the things we adore or use regularly. Thank you release. Goodbye guilt.
