Sometimes we’d like to have a fresh start, but it seems difficult when our environment isn’t so fresh. Our ideas aren’t so fresh. Our motivation isn’t so fresh. It benefits us to identify things that are taking up space, so we can clear them out and make room for what’s new and more helpful to our lives.
Identify things that are taking up space, so we can clear them out and make room for what’s new and more helpful to our lives.
Ask yourself, what is it time to release? When we put down the heavy weight of some of the baggage we’ve been carrying around, it’s amazing how much more energy we have to accomplish the tasks necessary to move us closer to our true purpose. We often need to remove certain objects or even entire relationships from blocking our view of our purpose in the first place. Most of the time, these aren’t easy decisions to make. We become so emotionally involved in situations, and attached to our things, and certainly invested in our relationships – so making changes in these areas is no small matter. If those circumstances can be improved, of course our first attempts are to try to improve the situation before completely removing the situation from our lives. But chances are, by this point, you’ve already made several attempts to improve it and have ended up with the same results. If this is the case, then it may be what we are referring to as the subject here of taking up space in your life, where something more positive and affirming could be.
Do a Quality Self-Check:
- What relationships are enhancing versus harming your sense of wellbeing?
- What thoughts patterns & beliefs are enhancing versus harming your sense of wellbeing?
- What behaviors & habits are enhancing versus harming your sense of wellbeing?
Once you’ve identified which are helping you, do your best to honor those relationships, affirm those thoughts, and continue those positive behaviors. When you identify the relationships, thought patterns, and behaviors that are unhelpful to you, this is what you want to remove from your life to create space for something new that brings you closer to the better quality of life you deserve to experience.
