“If one changes internally, one should not continue to live with the same objects.” ~ Anais Nin
Nobody has any time these days.
We’re so busy, rushed, and over-occupied that it’s difficult to have a mindful connection with the things that truly matter.
We spend a lot of time juggling things, keeping plates spinning, and organizing in order to enjoy a few spare moments each day.
It shouldn’t be this way. We’re so much more aware of our lifestyle choices now—and equally as aware that the present moment is the most important one.
So, how can we—without too much fuss—create space and time in our lives? Especially at springtime, we feel a natural urge for shifting and growing into our best selves.
There are three key areas of our daily existence that get saturated with confusion. Freeing up physical space also frees us emotionally and spiritually. Imagine feeling lighter in all areas of being—what freedom!
I’m really going to keep this pared down, so you can get started straight away:
Possessions: When we’re weighed down physically, we’re weighed down emotionally.
Take a good look at what you’re carrying around with you. Besides ourselves (meaning our physical being), we’re also responsible for what we own.
Ask yourself: Do I need all this stuff to be happy? If you do, that’s fine—as long as that’s your core truth.
If a part of you has been itching to shake loose of the “stuff,” then begin letting go. Donate or sell everything that is not necessary to the path you are walking. This may cause a revelation about changes you want to make to your lifestyle. You might end up completely re-inventing yourself. Uncover a you that has been longing to emerge. She’s beautiful.
