Goodbye excess crap! We won’t miss you at all!

Let’s celebrate and have a party to say “Hasta la vista!” to the excess junk in our lives that interferes with our clarity and focus. This is a tossing party. Let’s get started.

Toss is a perfect word. It’s not about throwing everything in the garbage, rather it’s about gently and simply removing things you don’t need in your life anymore. Tossing implies an easy and casual feeling. We are not clingy and needy. We are confident and we trust that our decisions regarding our things will be the right ones. We are saying “Buh bye!” to those ‘maybe someday’ items that, if we are honest, we admit that we will probably never actually use.

Let’s get radical! Let’s make plenty of space for what we know we want and need in our lives. We are creating our reality with our decisions. This is for real. Feeling cluttered and confused is not an option. Today is the day to get decisive and create a clear, straight path to our destination.

We start by putting aside the essentials, so we already have everything we really need. These are the exact things we would pack if we were going on a vacation in our own country. If you were going on a holiday nearby, you would pack your:

  • essential toiletries
  • most loved clothes
  • ID
  • money
  • keys
  • and most used tech with your essential information

That’s it!

The rest is all fluff. It’s icing on the cake and you can take it or leave it, depending on your bravery and decisiveness.

Play your favourite music and enjoy the process. Feel how much lighter you already feel! Yes. This is liberating. You are allowing yourself more space to dance, move, breathe and spice things up.

Once you get the unnecessary stuff out of your space – Breathe – Smile – Appreciate your great choices and enjoy the satisfaction of your accomplishment. Tomorrow you will wake up smiling some more because you’ve made your life easier, more straightforward, and uncomplicated.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think.
