Purge for space

Purge it mindfully... and be kind to yourself when you do this. It won't be easy... even if everyone NOT in your shoes tells you it is.

  • Why is it so hard to let go of things?..

  • Why do so many buy things to feel better?..

  • Why do others buy things... only to return them?..

I was born into a scarcity mindset. My mom grew up in a third world country with the Vietnam war knocking on their islands. My dad slept nights in the family chicken coup in South Texas. That alone could create a hoarder or hoarding situation. My dad kept old tools, a shed full of "stuff" and my mom has a rooms full of "stuff"... even cans of very expired food.


OPTION ONE because you gotta begin somewhere.


The PHYSICAL PART:

  • Lay the items out on your floor and take a photos

  • Bag or box it up and sell it in bulk

  • Post on FB marketplace or your FB with a price like $25 "NON NEGOTIABLE".

  • Don't sell parts of the bag or box; buyer must take all.

  • Meet somewhere you'd normally go not out of your way for the transaction.

Most of us have a hard time letting go of something because we feel it's worth something and so it is...

The MENTAL - EMOTIONAL PART:

  • Don't over think it.

  • Keep it Simple.

  • Don't worry if people in your social media circle laugh at you. There will be many silent ones secretly cheering you on that you are giving hope to!

KEEP THE MOMENTUM GOING:

  • Refrain from refilling the cleared space with new items.

  • Create a monthly schedule to repeat this until it's all gone.

  • Take the money you've made and put it aside for a sunny day fund.


Our bodies hold onto resistance in the form of tension, so join me on TUESDAY NIGHTS 9PM CST for a Yoga Nidra tiktok Live event this month in January... to RELEASE and LET GO!


Sincerely,

Polly
