Many of you know that hubby and I made a move this past weekend into a bigger place – FYI it’s also one story so that Jaeden doesn’t have to take the people-elevator up and down the stairs with his bad knees.
Anyway, back to my point, you never quite know HOW MUCH STUFF you have in your house until you move and immediately prefer to THROW it away rather than keep it!
I started thinking about how this is done in life quite often – in many different facets and areas:
Moving from house to house or Spring cleaning
Adding something to a routine or schedule
Adjusting to a new income whether more or less
Relationships of all sorts
PURGING is needed constantly to help us evolve and grow as people and individuals!
* Taking a peek at the definition *
purge (pərj/) verb – gerund or present participle: purging
1. rid (someone) of an unwanted feeling, memory, or condition, typically giving a sense of cathartic release
What should we be taking a look at when it comes to PURGING in our lives??
So, when it comes to tangible things: can you get rid of it? Can you donate it? Do you even use it? Would someone else you know have a better use for it? Are you holding onto something from the past that you on longer need in your future?
When it comes to your schedule and having to make time: What do you do that seems purposeless (i.e. is it TV or limitations on social media – ah!) that you can remove to make more time to do something of more PURPOSE or for YOURSELF in general?
When it comes to relationships: Who in your life matters? Who brings positivity in your life and also thinks in line with how you think? Who around you shares the same goals? Is there someone in your life that is now bringing more negativity than positivity into your life? If there someone you’re around who doesn’t support you and your life?
Is it time for a PURGE yourself?
What areas in your life would you take a look at in more depth?
