I returned home from my recent travels disturbed by the cardboard boxes I found in my bedroom. I could hardly believe they had been there for months (or longer). Being away gave me the perspective that stumbling over these boxes is a terrible way to get out of bed each morning! A good friend of mine, Ava Carpentier, came by to hear about my travels and while we talked, she helped me go through these items. Together we made a pile for donation, filing, garbage and to be fixed.When the boxes were gone, my friend rearranged my bedroom. Afterwards, it felt new, larger, expansive, clean and I felt ready for something new to come into my life. We celebrated with champagne and dancing.
We all have stuff we don’t know what to do with and we shove it into a box or closet or worse – in our bedroom! These items hold emotional attachments to old boyfriends, old thought patterns and other things that you intellectually want to let go of, but are still holding onto. You cannot lift these emotions out of your body, but you can do this with your stuff. You can dust, lift and throw out your stuff from old boyfriends, and feel how dirty, heavy it is. You can see how much space it was taking up in your life and how much room you now have for something new.
If you want radical change in your life,sometimes you need to make radical changes. After you have made room by take it one step further and shake up your house by jus trearranging everything? You don’t need to buy anything new and I guarantee youwill feel like you have a new house, new lease on life and you will be readyfor the next chapter! Making a change in your living environment represents a change in your life – so rearrange your furniture and see how much change occurs! Its about seeing things in a new light. And let me know what happens!.
