This is my new system for things left behind. I'm gonna mark everything like a car tire, then tow it away to the trash can if left unclaimed. These particular bottles have been here several weeks so the date marked is very generous. #purge#mariekondothatshit#itdoesntbringmejoy
It’s time to let go. Time to get rid of things that are no longer serving me.
It might not seem like such a big deal to throw away some old swimsuits, but these suits have held me hostage for years.
These are the suits I’ve held onto for when I’m lean enough to wear them again. These are the suits that perpetually remind me of where I once was. These are the suits that signify worthiness and accomplishment.
These are the suits that have kept me stuck. Stuck in the mindset that my physical appearance and level of leanness determine my worthiness. Stuck in the world of body image obsession. Stuck in the belief that when I reach a certain size, I will finally be happy with myself.
I have come so far in being comfortable in my own skin. I still have a long way to go, but I’m getting closer every day. Yet just seeing these suits sent me into a downward spiral. They’ve got to go. I am mentally stronger than the size of my swimsuits. I have outgrown them, both physically and emotionally.
Why do we hang onto things that keep us stuck? Clothes, relationships, jobs, etc? If they no longer serve you, be strong enough to say goodbye. Hanging on to clothes you used to fit into is not motivating, it’s defeating. I think most of us know that in order to grow, we have to stop comparing ourselves to others. What you don’t realize is that comparing yourself to who you used to be is even more damaging.
It’s time to purge!! What do you need to get rid of that no longer serves you?
