In case my peeps are curious, the reason I have been absent from posting this week is because I have been busy getting rid of things. Moving in a positive direction requires weeding out the old to make room for the new. Two things cannot occupy the same space.
I started with my yard, which now looks pretty good. I have huge piles of weeds that I am waiting for someone with a truck to cart to the dump. It was a lot of work, but I was determined to get the job done. My next project was a large shed that houses stuff that doesn't belong or fit in my house. Some of the objects are just being stored by others. The next step is to get the others to take care of their own belongings!
For several years I have been wanting to replace my bedroom set purchased in 1972. The pieces are Lane and very heavy, especially the 6'7" long dresser. Although I replaced the mattress after my divorce, 11 years ago, I couldn't afford to do the same with the furniture. I knew someday that would happen. Last Tuesday was that day. I followed my strong intuition to our local furniture store and discovered they were having a 1/2 off sale. Guess what? My new bedroom furniture was delivered on Thursday and I love it. The best part was my old furniture is now in the home of a young man who needed it, oddly just up the street from me.
Of course, taking the contents out of the drawers resulted in disposing of unwanted articles, which led to going through closets etc. with the same intention. Amazing the things we accumulate! It is also amazing when we take a step in the right direction how quickly the universe comes in to assist us. One thing leads to another and another. It is called synchronization.
Recently I made the decision to list my house in the spring and find a nice 2 bedroom apartment. I have tried for 11 years to take care of my too large house and too large yard and I do not choose to do it anymore. The endless effort is draining my positive energy.
Out with the old and in with the new is a fantastic adventure and feels fabulous!
