Hi everyone! How are you doing? ❤️ This post marks a major turning point in my life….I’ve finally decided I’m ready to part with some stuff that I have no real need for but found difficult to let go at one point 😄 (I remember writing somewhere on here a long long time ago that this would never happen but it finally is!).
I’m of the mindset that I only want to surround myself with things that matter and I’m fully aware that material items like these aren’t the most important things in the long run but I now feel like the stuff I’m surrounded by is meant to be there and isn’t holding me back.
I’m coming to terms with the fact that there is not a chance in hell that my bedroom is ever going to be minimalistic 😂 but I want to make it as close as possible so that it’s housing stuff that holds more good memories than bad. I suppose this can count as Spring cleaning just before the season ends! 🌻
For so long I have kept ahold of things because I haven’t felt I could get rid of them but at the same time I didn’t exactly want them in my life as they took up space + some of it made me sad to look back on and now that is changing. Seeing old school books, notes, story books and clothes going in piles & boxes from different phases of my life is strange but it’s nice to think that I’m moving forward and making room for new obsessions whilst holding onto those that don’t hurt when I look at them (like my collection of Enid Blyton books and my trunk of Beano comics which will stay with me forever and are probably damaging the structure of the house because there’s so many of them 😬 but ah well 😂).
I’ve been going through it all in stages so that I don’t make any wrong decisions that I’ll regret in a moment when I just want to get it over with because I’m tired or a migraine flare-up is coming on and so far I’m 100% positive with my choices. Right now as you can probably tell by the photo above there is loads of stuff ready to go all over the floor so in the middle of the night when I need to go to the toilet I have to remind myself to turn on the lamp so that I don’t fall over everything 😂
Alongside the internal feeling that things are changing (like my perspective) I’m also noticing that there is going to be so much space when everything I don’t want or need is gone! (Well the majority of it anyway 😂😏). Anywho, I just wanted to record this moment here as I never thought it would happen and I want to share it with you + track the things that are going on so that I can look back and remember them later instead of thinking nothing is changing when it truly is in little ways like this that mean a lot in the long run ✨
Thank you for reading guys! 😊 Have you ever found it really difficult to get rid of something that you don’t really need anymore? If so, how did you bring yourself to do it? Let me know and have a wonderful day! 💖
