I decided a few months back that I was going to clean out my house and have an attic sale. In fact, my new mantra for the past several months has been "I've decided I'm living light!" I have been cleaning out closets and going through drawers and pulling stuff out of the storage room. More stuff piled on top of more stuff. My home literally feels 300 pounds lighter. I can breathe in it again. I can move in it again. Most of all, I can live in it again. Why didn't I do this years ago?
The more I dig through the layers of my life, the more I realize that I keep much of the same junk stored up inside of me. Years of untruthful messages on top of years of shame piled on the years of doubt, fear and insecurities. Just as my house felt so heavy and weighted down with junk, so my life feels the same. I believe my weight represents the layers of all this stuff I hold on to. I have decided to have an internal attic sale. It is time for me to begin to take out one layer at a time and toss it if it is not truthful, helpful or promoting health and wellness in my life. I am ready to clean out the internal layers that keep me so weighted down.
I challenge you to look in the closets and drawers and storage rooms of your own life and see if there is some stuff that can be tossed. What a difference it can make and there's one thing I am sure of today. . . . I don't want it weighing me down any more!
Have a great week end!
