Since my move earlier this year, I have been letting go, purging, tying up loose ends and getting organized.
I figuratively burned approximately 10+ years of journals; pages and pages of raw emotions; sorrow, tears, joy, laughter, prayers and dreams into the shredder. The reason for all of this?
- What if I die tomorrow and my family comes across these sacred writings? They’ll read everything I wrote about them…oh, I can hear my eulogy right about now.
- One of my favorite things about life is the fleeting intimacy of events. One second here…another second gone.
- I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t need to relive my past. I’m good with the here and now.
Do not give your past the power to define your future
It was time to say Thank you and goodbye. I’m living a clutter-free life and loving it.
I’ll never advise on journal-burning; it’s a very personal matter. To keep, shred, burn, it’s your free will. But I can tell you this I’ve cleared space to purchase a few more journals. 🙃
Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas to you and yours. Life is Good ~ Bernice
