A Terrible Idea…Don’t You Just Love Those?
So as you all know now, I have something big coming down the pipeline this summer that I am getting pretty excited about. And every movie and show I watch, seems to point me in one direction of how to cleanse myself before this next adventure of adventures. I am going to be working really hard on so many aspects of my life over the next 5 months, but one has me terrified. Which means I should probably do it. If I have learned anything over the past several years is that if it is crazy uncomfortable, I should go with it. If it scares me to try, then try. Why? If it’s worth getting scared about, then it’s woken something up in me that maybe is worth exploring.
I have done this before, and it felt amazing. I just don’t know if I have the courage to do it again…regret tastes bitter. And yet, to have nothing to worry about, nothing to be tied to, AMAZING. So as you all know, I collect Disney items, Pop Funkos, etc.. and I do enjoy them. But as collections have grown, and things just aren’t as “exciting” to me anymore, I find myself wanting to join the minimalist movement even more. Maybe it’s age, but “stuff” doesn’t do it for me anymore. I find I am reverting back to my childhood where I got a brand new Barbie and she was exciting for all of a day, maybe days, and then I was already wanting another one.
Back in 2011 when we moved to Florida, we sold 90% of our belongings. We moved to Florida with two vehicles and some bins- that’s it! We had to go and rebuy beds, furniture, which we were prepared to do, but for a small moment of time, we didn’t have much of anything- just each other. I won’t be going AS extreme, but I have a lot of collections that I think I am ready to sell and find a new home for. I believe we can enjoy stuff for a period of time and then let it go…as hard as it is, I think it frees our soul to enjoy OTHER things, and honestly, it recycles the item over and over again for many people to enjoy.
I think I have found a taste for adventure that I didn’t know I would hunger for so much. I want to climb mountains and explore caves, I want to picnic in parks and get caught in the rain. Sounds like a good dating bio. LOL. My point is that I don’t want anything to hold me back from the freedom that living with all this “stuff” could bring. Sure, it’s scary- it’s scary even typing this. Heck, I don’t even know if I will have the courage to post it. But WOW do I love the idea, I LOVE the feeling, and I KNOW that it would make others just as happy. And if you GAVE me the stuff, know that I have enjoyed it, but it’s time to let other hearts love on it.
So what do you think- am I nuts? Will I walk past the newest Popcorn bucket at the Parks and instantly want one? Probably, maybe I will need a reminder of why I won’t need it anymore. Why I DON’T need it anymore. Have you ever done this? Sold it all and onto the next chapter? Stay tuned….
