One thing I love to do is every year when it gets close to Christmas I will tell my children to go through all of their old things and give them away or donate them to good will to make room for the new things you will be getting. I am amazed at all the stuff we get rid of.
How many of us are guilty of saving things because our excuse is you never know when we might need it. Then the day comes when you need the darn thing and you can’t find it among all the piles of stuff. Another thing that boggles my mind are the people who love to hang onto the past with all their clothes. They have a closet full of clothes yet they can only wear a fourth of them. There is a reason behind saving everything in their closet. When I loose 30 pounds I can wear that dress again or I can’t get rid of that suit, I wore that at Junior Prom 20 years ago.
In order to make room for what you want, you need to get rid of what you don’t want. This is how it works anything you have not worn or used in the past year, give it to a friend or donate it to good will. You will be amazed by letting go of the things you don’t need will open up channels for receiving things that you will use or need.
Out of the blue you might see a new outfit that is perfect for you at that moment or a friend will give you a new kitchen table they no longer need. It is fun to watch the miracles happen.
Cleaning up your life will be one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family. Remember things are not important. Good relationships with family and friends is what matters.
