Purging things out of our life by cleaning out closets, the garage, or filing cabinet are always wonderful ways of moving forward. In choosing to clean out areas of our life, we are deciding that we can be free of those unwanted items.

We may choose to donate or sell some of our things or perhaps we just throw the items away. Either way, we are Ok, and ready to be done with those things as they no longer are needed. We can easily discard of the things that we feel are no longer in need or value just by making a decision. Notice once we’ve committed to doing one or more of the above listed tasks, that in a relatively short period of time the task was completed. The closet is now cleared of unwanted clothing or shoes. The garage is now clean and uncluttered. The filing cabinet is also neat and organized. And, if we are really motivated, we may have a garage sale, and use some of the items we cleared allowing us to profit in an even bigger way. What’s nice in letting go of things is that we always feel better. Cleaning out the closet or garage involves doing something other than contemplating or complaining. When we feel inspired, we can accomplish anything. And once the task is completed, we feel satisfied.

Removing of items that are no longer needed is a form of letting go. Perhaps you can remember throwing away things from a job previously occupied by another employee, or maybe you have thrown away items from an ex girlfriend or boyfriend. It feels good! In clearing away things that are no longer of use to us, is allowing us to make room for new things to enter our lives.

If by chance you are holding onto an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend’s picture in your wallet, or maybe items of their clothing in your closet, now is probably a good time to remove those items from your space. This habit of holding on is coming from a position of lack. When we hold onto past relationships, it keeps us stuck in a cycle of unhappiness. By holding on, we are wishing things could be different. We are filled with regrets. We very much want to change what happened. Holding on and waiting for someone to return is playing a foolish game. If the relationship ended, it is an indication that you both were ready to move on. The person may return… or may not. Either way, you have to let go of holding on. Living your life in waiting… isn’t living. Accept what occurred and be willing to move on.

When we honestly look at being independent of a job or relationship it’s somewhat intimidating because on some level we became attached to that relationship for security. It is Ok to let go.
