Everyone loves a fresh start. Since we were children we’ve been wired to look forward to newness. Fall meant back to school, and we got excited over blank notebooks and gel pens. As adults we shift our attention to the New Year, create resolutions, wipe the slate clean, and start over.
Any chance I get to “start over”, I take. Ridding the old is something that just feels FRESH. Like when the breakup is officially behind you, and you have this amazing chance to reinvent yourself to be a better person and stronger woman. Or move across the country to a new city, or have a career change.
Over the past week of me being MIA from the blog, I moved, (and have been internet-less). Packed up my life and moved a whopping three blocks, but to a beauty of an apartment almost three times the size of my old studio space. It. Feels. SO. New.
I’ve been purging anything I don’t need, making space for new things, or just letting space be… space. I’ve donated loads of my belongings, and tossed a whole bunch too. We tend to hold on to more than we need, or use, and to make space for space’s sake is something I think we can all work on.
If your closet, dresser, hair product drawer, whateverrrr is clustering up your life and routine, get RID of it. Donate and throw things away to make room for freedom. Getting and maintaining that organization is absolutely the best feeling and will carry over in other aspects of our lives.
Hop to it!
