When letting go is hard.

Everyone has at least one part of organizing that is challenging for them. For me, letting go is the most difficult part.  By letting go I don’t mean the decision to let go of things, that’s actually pretty easy for me to solve. What I mean is the actual releasing of objects…taking things to be donated, taking the trash out, etc.  When I get to this phase of organizing my own stuff I tend to freeze like deer in the headlights and then want to take a nap on any horizontal surface in view.

It has been like this since I was a kid.  I remember crying when my parents sold our family truck like they were getting rid of a dear friend.  I’ve always felt drained by this part of organizing when it comes to my own stuff.  It’s more than a mental “challenge” I can think my way out of, it’s a physical reaction that stops me in my tracks and makes progress very difficult to attain. Like I said when letting go is hard…

Check out this short video to learn the 4 things I do to make sure I release things from my life…no matter how hard it is.  You can have a hard time releasing things from your life AND still release them.  I’m living proof of that.
