As the baby items started collecting in our house, we needed to make more room. The best way I found was to clean and purge. As I started in 1 room of the house and donated items to neighbours and the Salvation Army, I noticed that my mind felt freer and freer. If I felt this good after 1 area, what would happen if I decluttered the entire house?
I also learned what emotional attachments I have to material things. I kept old clothes and belongings that had sentimental value. When I let go of some of these objects, I started to gain more and more energy. Soon, my nervous system learned that it was fun to give things away, especially if someone else really needed and could use them.
In my neighbourhood, we have a group where we can post things that we don’t need anymore and a neighbour can request what we post. It makes everyone feel better and grows our community closer together.
