This gift comes with no strings attached!
One of the things I've witnessed while helping people de-clutter is the guilt attached to letting go of a gift they don't like because a family member gifted it to them.
Do you relate?
Do you ever feel obligated to keep an item even though you don't use it or love it?
Then, It ends up collecting dust in a corner or hides in a closet?
It is amazing to me how many emotions are attached to stuff!
Learning to let-go is something we all need to work on, but it gets easier the more you practice it.
Sometimes we need to learn to look past the actual physical item, and think about how it relates to your life and what your goals are.
If you don't use it can you pass it on to someone else that will?
When I work with my clients, I like to go through the items that don't hold so much emotional attachment for them, first.
It's easier to dig deep once you remove clutter from fogging your thoughts.
I saw this post online and thought about all the gift-giving we do with the intention to make someone smile.
Especially during the Christmas Season, we spend so much time putting thought into someones gift because we want to let them know how special they are in our lives.
The post read:
This certainly adds a bonus gift of freedom and relief to whomever receives the thoughtful gift, don't ya think?
I hope this encourages you and helps you to find relief in remembering that whomever gifted you an item, it was meant to bring you LOTS of joy!
But, If it doesn't I'm sure they would give you their blessing, to pass it on when you are ready.
Wishing you all the love this Christmas Season!
