Such a satisfying afternoon today! I had just come from a Kinesiology session today, clearing a bit of mental junk that was getting stuck in the forefront of my mind. I went into the session, feeling pretty flat, and tired, like the whole world was just grey and fuzzy. An hour later and I’m dancing around the nearby park, blasting Taylor Swift in my ears singing like a lunatic, everything now a bright array of rainbow.
For me, my monthly kinesiology session is just like a check up, go in once a month, clean out any muck in my head, and then I’m sent off into the world again!
The last few days, this challenge has felt tough, forces and just pretty blah. Now I’m beginning to experience the many benefits of living a life with fewer possessions and it’s incredibly satisfying. Today it was so easy to find 20 items to remove, I even went over today’s challenge minimum! Plus, I already know another 10 possessions that are ready to go tomorrow!
It is comforting to know that after drudging through a bit of a drudgy, dull and frustrating week that this challenge has started to cultivate its rewards.
It will be strange however when I start a day without throwing something away!
