While it has a satisfying, somewhat cleansing appeal, the process of doing it makes me feel just a little bit ill. Granted, we don’t have a lot of material things, as I’ve made a conscious effort over the last 10-15 years to not gather together random bits of insignificant material objects. The process of sorting through what we do have and prioritizing keeping vs giving away is what makes me slightly nauseated.
That is, if I sit and think about it.
Stepping back and considering the process from a “feeling” point of view, not one that involves conscious thought but conscious feeling, I am eased into a much better state of vibration where I can focus on what I want. I want to keep things that have meaning to me and bring me joy when I look at them, when I hold them in my hands, when I remember where I got it and the circumstances around acquiring it. I want to cherish the feelings. I want to pass along those few special, memorable, good-feeling-provoking things that will also bring joy and meaning to my daughters.
It’s never just about me and what I want.
So, the minute nausea I feel at the idea of tackling the closets today is eased to near nonexistence, simply by reframing my thoughts and adjusting my vibration and focus. Love how life can be so simple!
Much Love to you today!
