When I left Nashville in 2014, I left behind everything except my clothes, toiletries, kitchen essentials, 1 heirloom, and 1 television. I downsized from a 4 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment. I had never been so tired of stuff in my life. I had stuff that I never used, furniture I never sat on, 12 years of accumulating stuff that was not essential or beneficial in my life.
When I moved to Georgia and became a minimalist, it felt so good. I had room, I could breathe, I didn’t spend all my free time cleaning and organizing. I had made space in my home which meant space in my life. Space in my life was far more important to me than anything I left behind. Seven and 1/2 years later I still love living with only essentials and items that serve a purpose.
I think as we are all about to move from 2021 to 2022, what I want to leave behind is to have more space in my life. Space that gives me a life to focus on my health and happiness. I want to downsize and get rid of the following:
- Energy Drainers
- Codependent Habits
I want to make room for the following:
- Healing from old wounds
- Spiritual growth
- Love in my relationships
I want to have space to grow in every area of my life. And I want to love my space so much that I never want back what I leave behind. I don’t want the gaslighting, drama, energy drainers in my life even if I miss the person. I want to make room for the essentials in life.
I’m ready to move! Who’s with me?
