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.

“Tapping creativity when you have a mood disorder is like trying to quench your thirst…

Sometimes magic gushes forth and threatens to overflow; other times it drips and trickles— or doesn’t flow at all…

Many of us believe these experiences occur more frequently and more intensely for those of us with mood disorders.”

Groucho Marx on Happiness

“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself:    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.  I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”

By : Groucho Marx
