Someone that I know is feeling badly lately. She’s working to clear clutter in her life, starting with her clothes closet. Pretty dresses, hot shoes, and really great worn-out jeans can be a real drag when they no longer fit. And it’s not just a matter of not fitting the body but when things no longer fit our life, they can be extra hard to let go. The temptation to cling to hopes and dreams not fulfilled, is powerful yet only by letting go can we make room for new hopes and new dreams. I work to console her, pointing out how delighted someone will be to receive her cast-offs. She, however is not consoled.
