Have you worn that sweater that has been in your closet for 4 years? What about those tennis shoes, a super cute pair of heels? Are you saving something for your grandchild that won't even be recognizable in 20 years? What in the world? How long have you had this? Do you really still need this?
Have you ever noticed how the Universe works. We are not in a place of lack. All of our needs are taken care of yet we hold onto things that are of no value to us anymore. Many people say we live in a throw away society, but what happens when you really just don't need something any longer? I receive great pleasure by seeing someone take something that is no longer of value to me. Sure, I will sell big ticket items but many times I give away high quality stuff. If I know someone who is in need or really likes something I hardly use, I pass it on. I don't hold it for some magical moment when I will remember to use it again.
This is a work in progress for me. I am not great at getting rid of things all the time and sometimes the stuff I hold onto has no real value, not even to me. When I find myself in that space I always ask, "Natasha, would you replace this if there was a fire?" This simple questions helps me in letting go. Also, if you have a problem letting go, just watch the look on someone's face when you give them something of yours they really wanted or needed, that alone should make you feel like a super hero.
When we release, we make way for new things!
