9 trash bags full of clothes
1 bag full of toys
6 trash bags full of trash
That is what left my house this past week.
Part of me is very mad at myself because I did something to aggravate my rotator cuff injury, so I spent most of the week on pain medication with a heating pad. I feel as if my well planned vacation with the girls was totally lost.
But in my effort to make positive decisions this year, I am trying to look at the positive instead of the what could have beens.
My youngest now can use her closet.
By letting go of all those clothes I am accepting what is and looking forward to the next stage of life.
My house is much less of a fire hazard with all those papers out of it.
My girls are learning how to give to others.
My girls have created a home for each of their belongings and can put things away without having to think or work too hard at it.
My allergies will get better without all the clutter.
I really do feel freer with all those things gone!
I am less overwhelmed and can see the individual jobs that need to be done to continue decluttering.
The time resting this week did allow my body to recover from the stress of the last few months and has given me the energy I need to face the next few weeks of darkness and joyfully anticipate spring.
