Yard sales are fun, right? Well, at least the making money part is fun. The other half of having a yard sale is like a therapy session in disguise. You sort through all your old belongings and they bring back so many unwanted memories. I wouldn't call it fun but more like therapeutic. Having a yard sale can benefit you in ways you may never even think of. A lot of us need to get rid of things that are blocking us from being successful in our future relationships with others.
You see, a lot of the times we tend to carry around unnecessary baggage. We get comfortable just hanging on to things or memorable items. In our head, we figure that we are holding on to these things because we have ‘rights’ to them or because you think they no longer hold any meaning. In all actuality, we are fooling ourselves. That item is in fact secretly torturing you. That couch you had with your ex, get rid of it. You should get rid of the pots and pans, the book case, the mattress, the watch you received for Valentine’s day, and the shirt from the concert you went to together. Your objective in life is to move forward. You can’t move forward with the past in your present.
I feel everyone should have a little yard sale every now and again. Yard sales bring about a spirit in you that gets excited about finding a home for your used, unwanted, and not needed belongings. You see, people come into our life for a reason or a season and its understood that you still care about that person and may not want to trash those things that bring up those memories. A yard sale is the best way to get rid of those old memories so you can press forward with your life without trashing them. A yard sale also allows you to put a value on those items for you to make a financial gain. If you got nothing else from a relationship at least you can say you gained financially and making money is always a great thing.
You should have saw me at my last yard sale. I was out there like Katt Williams in Friday After Next, "Everything 25% off, everything must Go!, Maybe even you."
