Squirrel Stashes...

Squirrel Stashes...

Do you have "Squirrel Stashes?"

These are oubliettes or "little places of forgetting."

I have a few. These are places where I put things that I just can't deal with at the moment. Little mementos or trinkets that remind me of places I've been or things I have done. They might be reminders of people that have graced my life here or there.

Every once in a while, it is a good thing to clear out these Squirrel Stashes. There comes a time when we need to let go of things, people, ideas, and beliefs that no longer serve us. For me, I found just how much I was holding on to when I went through a couple of my stashes.

I'm going to be honest with ya. It was a painful process. I threw out a ton of things from my previous life. I realized with each item that went into the trash that I was no longer the same person that collected these things. I was no longer the person that experienced this life.

I took the initiative to change my life. To be a better version of myself. I realized that I have changed, grown, and evolved into a whole new person and that it was ok to let go of the person that I used to be. In the past, I had to be what everyone around me expected me to be. I was almost plastic. Fake. I was this person in this environment and a different person around these people, etc. It was exhausting. In fact, I had done that for so long that I wasn't even sure of who I really was!

Making the decision to learn who I am and accept that person mind, body and soul was an absolute life-changing moment! No matter how hard it has been at times, I have never regretted it. 

Cleaning out my squirrel stashes helped me to see growth, changes, and to appreciate the joy of where I am now and the healing I have done. I was able to let go of things I no longer needed and no longer served me. 

Are there things in your life that you need to let go of? Things that no longer serve you? It might be painful at times but I promise you that You Are Worth It!

As always, your mileage may vary...

Much Love,

PS...The photo with the blog doesn't make sense right? Well, it does actually because that is a photo of the old me...the one that had to make the decision to love herself. I love her and she is more beautiful and stronger than she ever knew.
