January is the official fresh start month. Its too cold to do much in Minnesota, which meant I devoted an entire day to cleaning out my closet. Everything came out, it was sorted through, and only the good stuff went back in.
I overflowed our garbage (oops),
I got rid of 3 bins worth of junk,
I sifted through memories.
And I think I went a little crazy by the end of the day. But now every weekend that I come to visit my parents, I’m going to open a clean closet, that still has plenty of memories, but not unnecessary baggage.
I was able to reflect on high school, college, and the years up until now. I was reminded of things I had forgotten, and thankful for times that are over. I realized how many wonderful people have been in my life, and how lucky I am.
So if you haven’t cleaned lately. I encourage you to block off some time and give it a try.
Are you pack rat?
