Things you don’t use. People who use you. Possessions-roles-gigs that make you feel pinched, or awkward, cheated, compromised, heavy, confused…stuffed — they need to go. You know this. But it’s not just because dumping the chump and reducing your carbon footprint is a rightful, socially responsible and life-affirming action. It’s because possibility requires space to unfold.

Clear space.
Expand possibility.

Clear the way, make room, I’m coming through! I’ve noticed that over the past few months that I am getting comfortable with making room and clearing out! It was a tough journey to get here but I know when it’s being “forced” on me that it is time to pay attention! When I was coming to Uganda I took the stuff that I thought I would need the most and packed it. It fit into two suitcases. I got to the airport and they told me that I was only allowed one case I can either pay for the excess or leave it. I said I need my stuff I will pay, then they hit me the price! Same as a ticket. I told the man you must be joking! Why is it so expensive? He says for safety reasons be quick there are people behind you in the line! I did not have the money and I did not have a credit card. I stood there feeling like a chump! First I was thinking wait, you don’t even have cash for this? What is really your story at this point in your life? Then came the other layer, what will I do without my stuff? OMG!? In the end I left it! I got here lighter! And I don’t miss the stuff again one little bit!
So I began to think, well what the heck else was I holding on to and being forced to get rid of? A whole lot!!! And why am I holding on to it, I don’t even use it and many of the other “things” really serve no purpose in my life- Fear!!

Time to start shedding!
It’s been a slow process!

So what did I learn today?
Release is evidence of TRUST!
