I don’t know about you but lately I’ve been feeling almost like my “things” are all caving in on me.
I don’t really think that I’ve actually acquired that much new stuff since the last time I went through and purged to create more space but somehow, it does feel that way.
You see, I started living by the shifts that happen with the seasons a few years ago and it’s been a total game changer. Part of that has been doing a seasonal purge.
Some of which is purely energetic and emotional.
Some of which are more about the actual physical “stuff” in my life.
This morning I was reflecting and it seems like I’ve started to work in this pattern;
Spring & Winter- emotional/energetic purging. Summer & Fall- physical purging of my space.
Realistically, the physical purging 100% includes the emotional and energetics too. That;s usually not my focus but more of a beautiful by-product of the other action.
Now that I allow things to flow like that, it’s like I don’t even really have to think about it or remind myself that it needs to be done either. It seems that my body has gotten into a rhythm with the seasons and I just naturally started realizing a couple of weeks ago that it’s time to start clearing my space.
It doesn’t feel like a chore anymore like it used to but feels like something I “GET” to do instead and I’m grateful for that.
I used to be one of those people who would get very stressed out about the need to pull everything out, go through it, sort, and reorganize. I also used to never get rid of anything.
Now, I have a much different method.
I go for- less is more.
I go for pretty jars and storage options
I go for getting rid of things I don’t need, don’t use, or don’t wear and showing so much appreciation for those items as I clear them from my spacing knowing that it’s making space for more capacity within myself.
AND if it’s something I want to keep but don’t use often, I properly put it into storage. Somewhere neat and labeled and available whenever I decide I may need to pull it out.
This is so much more than just an act of organizing though.
So I decided to record a podcast about the depth behind this behavior and how you too can impact so much more than just your clutter or your closet with the act of purging.
