Hey, Fellow Tribeless!
What’s on your mind today? I’ve just accomplished some major Spring Cleaning.
Here’s what I disposed of. This past Thursday morning, I shed 740 ft2 of real estate! After eight years of trying to sell my condo, it finally and blissfully happened. My husband and I, for the very first time in all the years we’ve been together (eleven), are now simply a single home family.
And also this week, during our city’s bi-annual brush collection, we disposed of a few large, mangled tree branches that were torn down during a nasty storm two years ago and have since been cluttering the space behind our backyard shed.
So, why am I prattling on to you about something seemingly mundane? Spring Cleaning, The Penultimate Metaphor for removing old, outdated, unnecessary, excess stuff from both your external and internal space.
Removing the condo and the broken branches from our life frees up space for something new. Only when we shed our ill-fitting skin can a new one grow. I’m excited to greet what new thing comes!
What old stuff are you hanging on to, cluttering up your outer house or your inner house, that you could discard? What is it costing you to keep storing it? What new things do you want to invite in to your freshly junk-free space? I’d love to hear.
