We are super excited about the New Year and what lies ahead for us! However, to thoroughly enjoy and to be open to abundance, prosperity and opportunity I believe that purging and letting go of what holds you down is in order. I am a sucker for quotations, the law of attraction and all types of those self-help books that give you tips and advice for creating your own destiny. I have a collection of these types of books, which is almost embarrassing, but more than collecting these books, I actually do try to put these words, thoughts and actions into motion. In the last week I have had several people reach out to me saying, “Valerie, it is time for us to make some changes in our lives and in our home”. Well, this of course inspired me to write a blog on making room for abundance.
When trying to create room for abundance in my life I have a couple rules here at my home.The first rule I like to call “the three-pile method”. This is how it works;
Pile One: I hate this item and I will never use it = purge
Pile Two: I think I may use this item and I do like it = I will come back to this item later to see if it makes the cut
Pile Three: Every time I see or use this item it evokes a happy thought or time in my life = I must keep it
I have another new rule where I play a game with myself. I ask myself, if I were moving would I want to pack this and then unpack it again? If the answer is no, you know what to do.
I am also a big fan of vision boards because I do believe in setting your expectations on what you truly want and I use this inspiration for a collection of my favorite things all in on space. Surrounding yourself with images, items and things that inspire a feeling of empowerment or goal setting helps “put it out there” into the universe.
Not too long ago, I heard Barbara Barry say in a presentation something to the extent of let it go before it drags you (this is not the actual quote but this was my take away). This really struck me because I thought, how true!
I hope this blog inspires you to make plenty of room for abundance in this New Year ahead and moves you to create an inspiring vision board that will help you fulfill your dreams and aspirations!
