Pretty much everything will go as a matter of fact. We bought a scanner today so I can start to scan all the pics from when Jupiter and Sam were babies and the old pictures I have from my childhood as well. Getting rid of all this stuff is bitter sweet but I am more happy about it than sad. There is some stuff that I have had since I was a very small child or some of it came with me over other large life changes.
What gets me through is the excitement that comes from knowing that I am making huge changes in myself as I let these things go. I have a sense of adventure and joy at the lightening of a load I feel inside myself as I look around at my house and see the things that I can give away or sell at a garage sale that will then be appreciated by someone else. These things that I DON'T NEED. Its nice to evaluate exactly what I need to get by in this world. What makes me happy and what weighs me down.
When I imagine getting rid of things I envision them like balloons that I take outside and let go into the bright blue sky and wave goodbye as they float away. Its not a harsh send off but a gentle letting go and lift off and I can appreciate the feeling instead of mourn.
Turn that frown UPSIDE DOWN! Seriously, it helps and there is no shame in using a wall or a large pillar in the middle of an office store!
I adore my husband. He and I are both weird and our weird compliments each other. I think that maybe thats the key to it all. Today when I started taking my coat, purse, and glasses off and handing him my iPhone he immediately knew I was going to do a yoga pose in the middle of the office store and he didn't bat an eye. He just started snapping like it was totally no big deal. Such a rad fella.
Have to post this video of Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men as its the song I was listening to while I wrote and posted this blog. Its one of my current tools to get other songs unstuck from my brain box!
