Dear Diary…today is the 26th day of…

the 27 day challenge to clear 27 things from my life.


Today I cleaned my bedroom closet.  I removed 2 bags of stuff that I no longer need, have never worn, and that no longer serves me.

I was saving 3 items that I thought that I could sell.  They were hanging on my closet door.  Later in the evening, looking at them, I decided to add them to a new bag of stuff that I would donate.

I cannot tell you what a great feeling that gave me!  It seemed to have lifted something from my aura.  I had been carrying around one of those dresses for 35 years!

Once I discovered how great that felt, I decided to let go of 3 brand new scarves that I have never worn, or worn only once, because they make my neck too hot, and that style just doesn’t look good on me.

I organized all of my pillow making supplies, like needlepoints and crewel embroidery that I have collected, because I realized that I enjoy making pillows and selling them on my etsy store, Cottage Necessities.

That day I had two sales of pillows and pillow shams!

So, one thing I know for sure about my self is that I enjoy making pillows for people and that I don’t like wearing scarves on my neck.

Who knew it would be so hard to let go of some things?  And that it could feel so freeing when you do?  Note to self:  I need to trust the Universe more.

My affirmation for today is…

I see clearly my inexhaustible supply.  I see clearly just what to do!  Florence Scovel Shinn

P.S. tonight I listed some things that I found in my stash on my Etsy site.  Some pillows that I had made and never listed.  Sweet Dreams
