Yes, it is so important to toss stuff that makes you feel heavy-hearted.
Among the stuff I have tossed are the following (these are already included in my 38 count)
A hat that makes me feel old. It was also the hat I was wearing years ago when I was mugged. eccch.
(I was alright, but mugger got away). Hat was a reminder of that bad time. GONE!
Coffee mug that reminded me of a sad time in my like....reminded me of a person who betrayed a loved one.
Postcards that reminded me of a disagreement I had with two friends. GONE
SKINNY SKINNY clothes that reminded me I will never have my twelve-year-old body again. GONE!
FAT clothes that make me think I can't lose some pounds and get to a reasonable, healthy, happy-medium weight,
even if I won't ever be a skinny twelve-year-old again! GONE!
Unflattering photographs of myself. GONE!
More on the way, as I find stuff!
