Hey folks! On Day 8 of the new year, I finally took on a long-elusive task. It started last June, when I moved back over to my craftsman on Portland’s east side, thinking it was a temporary “East Side Retreat”, creating space and perspective on my long term relationship. Six months later, the relationship break turned to permanent split, and while I had painted many common spaces and bedrooms of tenant/roommates, but the bright blue painting tape remained on my walls.
The electric blue tape was a constant reminder I am in “transition”. In some ways, it was a way of avoiding the hard fact I’ve my move back home- and in with 5 roommates- was permanent.
But at New Years, I knew I needed to release an awful lot to properly start this new chapter in my life- my “offering” of sorts. Sugar, caffeine, sleeping late, my now ex, emotional baggage….and the painting tape.
Yesterday, I took it head on!
What have you been hanging on to? What do you need to release to have your Year of All Years? Any projects you could move forward- even small ones- that would help you release the past?
