The Power of the Purge

Jan 17, 2022

It is now 2022 and one of the rituals I spent the last few days of 2021 doing was removing things in my personal space that no longer serve me or bring me joy.

“Why am I keeping this?”

This is the question I ask myself with each item each time I go through the process of purging things from my home. The item can be articles of clothing, documents and pieces of paper, kitchen appliances, or home décor just to name a few.

As I begin to reflect on how I acquired an item--whether it was a gift or something I purchased, the lingering question screams inside my head, “Why am I keeping this?” 

Sure, we keep some things because of the sentimental value they possess or the memories surrounding them. And then, there are some things we keep because we say we are going to do something with them, but never get around to it. Or, we keep clothes in our closets that no longer fit because one day we think we will get to wear them again.

But guess what?

While we may finally get around to getting something done or fitting in those clothes we once (or never) wore, it most likely will not make us feel the way we thought we would. You see, we cannot LIVE in the past, only the present. In the present, we can ACT to make way for our future selves.

This is the purpose and the power of the PURGE. Purging is a way to say goodbye to the things and, even people, in your life who served you well and brought you joy for a season, but now no longer do. When removing things from your home, you are literally removing weight, opening up spaces, and creating positive energy for yourself. When you recognize that certain relationships need to end, you are growing as a person and making room for others to come into your life in the future.

The main focus of a purge is ACTION. It’s about moving things out of your mind, heart and sight. I challenge you to think about what you need to purge and take the following steps:

Pull out your drawers, bins, and open your closets

Unlock your storage unit and/or your safe

Review what you plan to keep, donate or throw away

Get boxes or bags to pack what is leaving

Eliminate the presence of those things from your space

 

Now it’s time for a better you in 2022!
