Out of your head

Saying things out loud can be powerful.
And illuminating.
And helpful.
And funny.

Voicing why you’re keeping something often 
helps you realize you don’t really need it any longer.
Putting into words the value you’ve attached to an item
helps you determine what it’s worth in the life you lead now.
Saying out loud what has only been a vague rumbling in the back of your mind
lowers the power of an object.

The next time you’re decision challenged,
say out loud (even if you’re all alone) your why,
your justification, your reasonings and see if 
your perspective shifts and there is clarity.
Maybe you’ll decide to keep the item,
perhaps you’ll see it’s time to let it go.

Be okay with whichever decision you make.
Move on.
