Soul Searching Sunday: Joy
The other day while I was off of work enjoying the holiday break, I decided to do absolutely nothing. I woke up, read and then decided to take a nap. When I woke up for the second time I decided to do something that I rarely do and watch Netflix. While browsing through the shows I saw a show called,”Tidying Up”. During the show the professional organizer would assist families in decluttering and ￼organizing their home. The first thing she would have them do was look at the item that would be kept, given away or thrown away and asked themselves the question, ” How much joy does this item bring you?”
I was blown away at how simple the question was and the revelation that could come to someone if they were honest. If the item didn’t bring joy then you gave it away or threw it away.
What if we applied that same concept to our daily lives?! Would you have as many material things that you have? Would you be in certain relationships that you are in? Would you still be in the job that you don’t care for?
Today’s reflection: What or who are you holding on to that no longer brings you joy? Is it something that you can work on or work through or is it time to let go?
Happy Sunday! 💋
