Let’s prepare for a new year, new decade, and new You. First, let’s get rid of the clutter and create the space for the new beginnings.
I’ve been shredding old documents. Anything older than a year must go. Old business cards—tossed. I have one bag left of documents to tackle.
I’ve cleaned out the kitchen junk drawer. I’ve discovered and stacked the 25 plus Bed, Bath and Beyond coupons. Tomorrow I will shop a shopping date tomorrow with my daughter for her new apartment.
I’m cleaning my closet today and dropping donations off again this weekend. Too small, too big, and “I just don’t love you“ items are being bagged.
But I’m having a hard time letting go of books. Books are my weakness. They require ceremonious good byes. I will bring them to my 2020 leadership training events and offer them to attendees. Some are written by people near and dear to me so this will be a passing down and sharing of wisdom. This is the only way my psyche can handle departing with them. I must know first-hand that they are going to good homes with loving and caring people.
The count down is on and I’m so excited. And thinking of all the opportunities and all I can be in 2020. I’m making my list of intentions and refining them over the next four days.
So how about you? How are you winding down 2019 and creating the space for the new decade, new year, new You?
In 2020, good things await but we must prepare and make room to receive them. No clutter. No baggage. We need the space.
