Lately I have had the urge to purge unnecessary things from my life. While by no means am I a hoarder, without even thinking I tend to hold onto things longer than I should.
From old greeting cards to clothes that are older than I care to admit, its got to go. I am now choosing to keep only what I really need.
I have a thing about organization! It is not enough just to clean a room but it has to be organized or it just doesn’t make sense. If it is something I haven’t worn in the last year…it’s going out. I am an artist and crafter which also means I have a lot of supplies related to my hobbies. Even these may need to be purged to eliminate outdated or unusable items to make room for new ones.
Even my dog has a special area for his grooming supplies, toys, medical supplies and food. He has a toy box but like kids he just can’t seem to put his toys away!
With more renovations in my house that need to be done purging is not an option but a necessity. Every day it gets easier. After all, it’s just stuff!
If cleanliness is next to Godliness, I should be in line for sainthood soon. All kidding aside, it is not what you keep but what you get rid of that matters!
Have a great and productive day.
One thought on “The Purge”
I think we all do some type of purging. Rather it be mentally, physically or spiritually. Coming clean is a good thing. I remember when I did a purge, I never knew how I had allowed others to influence me. I had to get rid of that old thinking. And even now at times that old thinking will show up and I have to rebuke it.
