What are you doing that no longer serves the purpose that it might have at one time? Do you continue it out of habit, a fear change, or a sense of “obligation” or belief others think you’re supposed to be doing it? They might have started out being great additions to your life, adding joy, but time changes everything – and that’s really not a bad thing, it’s just a fact. When we give ourselves permission to change with the time, rather than doing everything the same way over and over again, it can feel like a great relief. For me, these are not BIG changes currently, although I’ve made some very big changes at times in my life that were the best choices I could have made. But those minor “obligations” or habits that no longer feel right can cause major stress for us without our even noticing, chipping away at our joy, vitality, and passion. This is like Marie Kondo’s cleaning house advice, except it’s about cleaning our house within. “If it doesn’t spark joy,….” then, perhaps, it’s outlived its purpose and we can stop doing those habitual behaviors in order to make room for the sun to shine in.
