Spring cleaning – Part 1

The past few days were hectic with me doing some spring cleaning and letting go of the clothes that have been hanging in there for more than two years without being touched once.

Parting away with some of my clothes was really hard! As much as I try to stick to that 2 years rule I can't help hesitating and thinking enna laaa I might need it later on.. fa usually I fail miserably in getting rid of them!

Bs this year was different. I came across words of wisdom that i found on a post on Re-nest that were so good it made me star that post for future refrence.

It said that u must practice SHED. Which is an abbreviation for "Separate the treasures, Heave the trash, Embrace your identity and connect to who you are without your stuff, and Drive forward"

So I wrote SHED on a paper and put it in front of me to motivate me everytime I had doubts, o it worked! i finally got rid of some of the items that i had for (gasp) 6 years!! =D

bye bye u once-upon-a-time loved pieces. hope u find a better home where u be of help to a person in need..

Words of wisdom! It is so true.. people have a tendancy to attach themselves to material things... all that does is take away from their personality!
