Over the past few months I had to take a few steps back to reorganize my life. I have also come to terms with a lot of internal issues and struggles I have been dealing with over the past 3 going on 4 years in which my life has changed. Change! starts from within like an internal renewing of Spirit and mind. I’ve decided to come to terms with a lot of wonders, fears, doubts, wants and even some questions. I have also decided to allow some of my past wounds to heal and learn from the many changes I went through during the process. I can honestly say that I feel better now that I’m Out With the Old and making way for the NEW!

I took a mini break from my normal routine and went away for a few days to Indiana Pennsylvania (IUP) to celebrate a graduate and to also clear my head. I had so much time to rest and clear my mind that I was able to really take everything in. When I came home I looked around my room and I said “Everything Must Go”. I held onto a lot of clothing items, books, old letters, shoes, jewelry etc… The old me died 3 1/2 years ago but the old me clothes and items were still lingering and they had to go. I woke up the next day and I’m not sure if I had a dream or not that night but I knew that my first mission was to give away and get rid of all the things that I was holding onto.
There is a sense of FREEDOM when letting go, a cleansing of the mind, body and soul. Out With The Old, In With The New -MissLIV
As I was clearing my room I felt a sense of newness and relief. Kind of like when I previously settled a few friendships and/or relationships that lingered or tried to rekindle themselves that were toxic and unhealthy for me. I feel my whole being changing and it’s kind of surreal to me. I’m growing into a woman not only mentally and intellectually but physically as well and it feel awesome. My desires have changed and I’m more focused on the betterment of my mind, body and soul more than anything else at this moment. I have to make room for my future when it arrives so I committed the outward expression of cleansing.
I can’t expect for new things to come into my life if I still held onto my past and the people I left there. I can never want better for myself if I settle for anything less than GREAT! I can’t expect to be loved if I carry around anger and resentment, so I decided to let my past go and the people who was in it. There was no way that I was going to be able to move on while looking back and holding on. I’m finally Out With The Old so I can prepare for the NEW! -MissLIV
