Good Riddance


In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today? - Mary Manin Morrissey 


Have you got the habit of hoarding useless objects, thinking that one day, who knows when, you may need them? 

Have you got the habit of accumulating money and not spending it because you think that in the future you may in want of it?

Have you got the habit of storing clothes, shoes, furniture, utensils and other home supplies that you haven’t used already for some time?

And inside yourself…? Have you got the habit to keep reproaches, resentment, sadness, fears and more?

Don’t do it! You are going against your prosperity. It is necessary to make room, to leave an empty space in order to allow new things to arrive in your life.

It is necessary that you get rid of all the useless things that are in you and in your life in order for prosperity to arrive.

The force of this emptiness is one that will absorb and attract all that you wish.

As long as you are materially or emotionally holding the old and useless feelings, you won’t have room for new opportunities.

Goods must circulate: clean your drawers, the wardrobes, the workshop the garage. Give away what you don’t use any longer.

The attitude of keeping a heap of useless stuff ties your life down.

It’s not the objects you keep that stagnate your life… but rather the attitude of heaping. When we keep in store, we consider the possibility of wanting, of penury.

We believe that tomorrow we may lack, and that we won’t be able to fulfil those necessities. With that idea, you are sending two messages to your brain and to your life. That you don’t trust tomorrow, and you think that the new and better are not for you.

For this reason you cheer yourself up by holding on to old and useless stuff.

Get rid of what lost its colour and brightness. Let the new enter your home, your life and yourself.
