As you know by now, I am moving. And a big part of moving is packing, which makes one ask themself over and over again, “Do I want/need this, or does it go to trash or donation?” At this point, I have asked myself that question easily over a thousand times! My brain is so tired of this question, that it no longer spends a lot of time determining which pile is appropriate—it more often than not screams, “Just get rid of it for crying out loud!”
What I have noticed as I just put another pile of donations out to the curb of things we no longer use/want/need, is that we hold onto a lot of stuff—for a multitude of reasons. We think we hold onto them because we might use them some day or we might fit into them again someday, but the truth is, all of this is based around fear. Fear that we might be without or not have enough. It’s the, “what if” fear.
Today I want us all to think about how fear dictates our lives. It lurks everywhere, around every corner, often unbeknownst to us, yet driving our behavior. I have eliminated probably 100 bags from this house and I still have too much. And if you decide to get rid of stuff like I am, please know this to be 100% true: you have enough, you actually have more than enough, and more importantly, you are enough!
Let’s GO! WE GOT THIS!
