31 days of letting go

clutter icon

I’m at a point in my life where I’m in desperate need of inspiration. We’ve all been there, the stuck-in-a-rut, what-is-my-purpose-in-life kind of attitude that leads us to search high and low for something, someone, anything to tell us what direction we should be going in. I turned to the internet in hopes of finding some sort of guiding light, and surprisingly the internet gods heard my prayers. I am not sure yet what sorts of life goodness is going to come from all this inspiration, but I’m super excited about it.

My desire to write more has become stronger since coming across several blogs about motherhood, organization, and faith. One of those blogs has brought me to this very post. The Nesting Place is hosting a 31 day challenge where bloggers write about one topic for the month of October.  There are tons of links already on her blog. So. much. inspiration. 

I hesitated before making the decision to join in on this challenge. My hesitation came from fear. Fear of not being as good of a writer as other are, fear of not being interesting, fear of being vulnerable, fear of not being enough. I began to realize that fear stops me from doing a lot of things. So, I am choosing to let go of that fear. I want to let go of the negativity that clouds my mind and the doubt that overcomes my faith in what I know to be true. I want to let go of clutter, tangible and intangible, that hinders me from being my best self. It’s going to be an interesting adventure, and I hope that along the way I can be a source of inspiration for someone else.

    I love this idea! I was scared to do this challenge last year so I can relate (it took me an entire year to let go of all that fear). I can’t wait to read the rest of your series!
