WEEK TWO: DE-CLUTTER… LITERALLY
I don’t know about you, but I am one of those people that have a difficult time letting go of old things. I have this fear of needing it later. A close friend of mine reminded me that when we let go of old things we are merely making room for new ones. Last week, we focused on one attribute daily that we love about ourselves. This week will focus on removing things that are interfering with our positivity. This includes people. Did you know the company you keep, including the men you date, all could be expelling negative energy into your life? It can distract you from seeing yourself in a positive light. This week, let’s remove those things/people that could be aiding in our negative self-image. And yes, I used a picture of Bernadine from the movie, Waiting to Exhale. Hopefully, no one will be de-cluttering in that way.
This week’s challenge, free yourself of things/people that do not add to your positivity.
- First, PRAY before you implement any of these changes.
- Go through your closet and get rid of all the clothes that no longer compliment you and/or you don’t feel great about.
- Let go or take a break from that dude that you are questioning in your life.
- Distance yourself from that friend/ acquaintance that is draining you. Because, every relationship should be symbiotic, where you get as much positive energy from them as you are giving.
- Stay clear, if you can, of that coworker or person whom you feel you have to walk on eggshells around.
- In addition, let’s rid ourselves of those negative thoughts. When you think a negative thought, provide yourself with three positive attributes (sticky notes) to counter it.
To reiterate, please, please PRAY before you make any of these changes. In addition, do not overwhelm yourself trying to implement all these changes at once. For example, only get rid of a few items at a time in your closet. A little really does go a long way. Remember, this is a journey.
Do a double positive and donate those clothes you removed from your closet to a local charity and/or battered women’s shelter. Post a pic of those piles of clothes. Use #LovingMeDailyDeclutter
