Recently I was asked what I enjoy most about holiday time. Other than the most obvious responses–family time and good ol’ R&R, it’s purging. It’s the day when you walk into work in scruffy clothes and, with discerning eye, commence the act of renewal.
I adore purging. It’s a cleansing process that involves throwing out stuff you don’t need or want anymore. It is the spiritual act of not holding onto the past–especially things that really don’t mean anything anymore. It lightens your load, giving you the feeling of being ready to move on. By purging, you don’t fill yourself with the emptiness of past experiences. You make room for new ones.
