Let Go


Sometimes I think people think there is an invisible committee

of half crazed minimalists

conspiring to force them to get rid of all of their material possessions.

There isn’t!


If you like your stuff? Keep it!

  • Is there  value in that closet over flowing with unworn clothes?
  • That closet brimming with mismatched bath towels?
  • What about the basement abounding with un-played-with toys and Beanie Babies?
  • That attic stuffed with collections of trinkets?
  • That shelfs overrun by dusty DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes?

Great! Hold tight if you feel so inclined. Permission granted.

You have permission to keep anything that adds value to your life.download
And you have permission to keep anything that doesn’t add value to your life.

But you also have permission to let go.

  • You have permission to clear the clutter.
  • You have permission to remove the excess.
    • —the clothes you don’t wear, the junk you don’t use, the things you hold on to just in case

and focus on what’s truly important to you: health, relationships, passions.

Either way—you have permission.
Of course, you don’t need anyone else’s permission—only your own.

I Deserve to Be Happy


Low self-esteem and little or no self-worth are characteristic of depressed women. Their mistaken belief that they do not deserve to be happy can lead to a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Therefore, women should not judge their self-worth by their circumstances. Women should remind themselves daily that they deserve to be happy in order to break free from their negative thoughts.

forgiveNo matter how good you try to be to others, you will occasionally hurt them.

Forgive yourself for it.

By : Author Unknown

I always manage to step on someones toes.  No matter how careful I am, no matter the precautions I take, someone takes issue with something I say or do.  I’m told “You can’t please all the people, all the time,” but upsetting people hurts me.  i don’t like it when people think less of me.  I take it personally.  I hold onto it for way to long.

Forgiving myself is a hard one. I am intelligent and insightful.  Why did I not see it coming?  Did I   subconsciously do it on purpose?  My imagination goes crazy.
