“Before you can move in new directions, you must first let go of what’s not working for you.”
~Alberto Villoldo, PhD
I was surely doing a lot of letting go lately. Letting go of things once dear to me, no longer holding the same value. I was surprised how easy it was, at least for the most part. The house was getting bare inside, taking on a more and more minimalistic lifestyle and I loved it. I got a good preview of what I was working towards, and it felt like a mini trial version. All of a sudden those hard earned artifacts no longer had a place in my life. Throughout the process, it became apparent of how much I had changed, for however long ago I don’t know, but my entire life was receiving a complete make over. For the first time, perhaps in the history of my humble existence, I saw clearly, a vision of where I’ve been, my now and the future. And more importantly of what I truly wanted. From there a passion ignited, working towards peace and bliss, and the stuff of what had been my old life had no room in where I was heading.
I have to thank you for sending me such wonderful energy over the weekend. It was strenuous with the garage sale but it was a success. Monday came and it was mostly a breeze to get the house ready for it’s new picture date in the afternoon. I was able to function with minimal pain. By the end of the day the energy wore off and I was glad to put my feet up. This morning the house is back on the market and could sell this weekend. More change is coming and the decluttering and packing journey continues. The race continues but at least for the moment some stressful deadlines have fallen off and I hope to step a little lighter this week. I have packed my first couple of boxes and labeled them for the future. I can’t help but wonder how long it will be until I can hold that very box again and unpack it.
