243 items were discarded/given away. 27 items a day for 9 days. Mission accomplished.
What do I feel? Exhausted. I am ready to move into my studio and live there. Though I chose some days to dedicate to clearing the kitchen and my bedroom, my studio that has this inviting feeling that you can`t escape.
According to the rules of 27 things, you can move your items, give them away or throw them out. I didn`t feel I could move an item, as it felt like cheating. So I either gave it away or tossed it. From jewelry to old paper, it was put in circulation.
I had one read a story of a woman who was struggling to find a mate, held on to her very expensive bedroom set she got in her horrible divorce. When the Feng Shui expert asked why she kept it, if she obtained it through a painful event? The woman didn`t know what to answer. I realized I kept things given to me by people who caused me pain or had bad memories attached to it. It felt good to let go of the pain and memories. I feel light.
The spaces are free and clear. There is less clutter and I feel like I could start anew. I feel ready to take on the world. Or Monday which is not my favorite day. :)
