Professional Organizing Tips and Resources.
Talking about letting go is exciting to me. As an organizer I see many people hold on to things because they just can't seem to let go and today I hope I can help inspire a little release.
A couple of big reasons for not being able to let go of clutter is a feeling of insecurity and also sentimentality.
Afraid to forget the past, people will hold to kids’ clothes, toys and artwork. Afraid of what the future holds, they will hold onto anything that ‘may be useful one day.’
I say trust your memory, let go of trying to control the future. There will always be 'stuff', that you can be sure of.
So what can I offer as testimony? Well, on July 17th I am scheduled to give a talk to the local ‘Roaring Women’s’ group in Coquitlam.
At this meeting I am going to let go of a Teddy I have held onto for 10 years, and attached to it, two very special pins from my first solo motorcycle tour!
It is a hard thing to do, to let this go, yet I have my memory and I have photo’s, the Teddy goes.
