My de-cluttering journey has really been incredible this time around. Of course, I’ve attempted to minimize a million times in the past and always ended up right back where I started.
This time is different because:
1. I am intentional about my process. I’ve outlined the true reasons for my de-cluttering journey and committed to making it stick.
2. I am focused. I’ve removed a lot of distractions so I can dig deep into my heart and change my behaviors. No more Facebook, society chatter, or mindless shopping for fun.
3. I have defined MY definition of success. Success for me is following my heart, not what society tell me I have to do to be successful. Not surprising: my definition of success is a complete 180 from what society is telling us to do.
So, these three things have made me take a long hard look at my stuff.
I’m constantly still weeding out my unnecessary items and one of the newest things to go is my massive suitcase.
For one, I travel light now. Perhaps it’s that I’ve traveled enough to know that I never need everything that I usually pack. Not to mention there is a freakin’ WalMart on every corner if I so happen to forget something.
The suitcase that is now dropped off at the local charity is humongous. It comes up to my chest! It had to be stored on a ledge going down to my basement it was so big.
I will never, ever need to make that much stuff because:
a) I don’t want to be weighed down when traveling
b) It’s simply not necessary
It was time for this item to go so that I will not be tempted to feel like I have to stuff this sucker full on my next get-away trip.
I will continue to travel light and free up space in my home.
