Creating Space For Change

  Angels can fly because
   they take themselves lightly.
--G.K. Chesterton

I learned a new word this week. Minimalism. To live with less. Maybe you've heard of it. There's a documentary on Netflix that I have yet to watch on this subject, but the trailer sent me on a quest that stirred up the nest. It's the idea of living lighter by letting go of unnecessary stuff and keeping life simple. Anything that I didn't absolutely love, or haven't used in several years was gathered up. Before long, the car was loaded with boxes and bags of kitchen ware, knick'knacks, books, dishes, pots and pans, CD's, clothing, decorations, etc. I plowed through closets and cupboards so fast that Elliot's head spun as we drove to the local thrift shop.

Living lighter feels better; the house is more spacious and the stagnant energy that had collected in the corners was freed up. The Angels encourage us to lighten our load.

I've always heard the universe abhors a vacuum, so I shouldn't have been surprised when my friend called the next day. Did I want some free furniture from her office that was closing down? As tempting as it was, I declined. More or less, I am getting there day by day. What better time to clear out the old and make space to begin a new year by sharing with others.

Enjoy your day with the Angels. 

Love and joyful blessings,
