New Year declutter – liberation
This has been such an exciting journey for me…although my home isn’t ever cluttered, I have held onto a couple of things from my past…
Growing up I was really passionate about art. A passion that lasted into my early 30’s and one day just seemed to disappear. Through the years I have got rid of most of my art stuff, but still held onto a few things in the hope that the passion would be reignited. I’ve tried attending art classes and starting painting at home, but never felt any enthusiasm.
I put a bit of pressure on myself, not understanding how a passion could just disappear! Not fully being able to let go of something I thought was a part of me.
Can you relate to this, with an area of your life?
My friend Anna, who is also a coach asked me once if it was not alright to just let go and accept that my life had changed.
It’s funny because I say similar things to my clients, but couldn’t quite see it for myself. In fact Anna asked me that question about a year ago and it is only now that I have accepted that this is no longer a part of me. It could be in the future but not now.
So this is it, the box of art stuff I had in my store room is gone and with much liberation I also threw away old school painting. I looked at my old school paintings with a new light today, for the first time recognising the dark nature of the paintings which I now realise were influenced by my being bullied at school. They have now been neatly folded and put into the bin, and with closing the lid, I farewell any negative feelings I have subconsiously held onto associated with this time. Only leaving the strong person this experience also created 🙂
…as I like to say to my clients ‘I have now made room for the future’!
