The next event
This year's end is also a new beginning.
In Italy, at midnight New Year's eve, people used to throw out old stuff from their windows. Not recommended now but...letting go of some of the old stuff you no longer love or use is an option to consider, a decision to be made.
Thank the item for its service to you, say your goodbyes. Wish it well.
The you are ready to move on to the new year and more space and time not spent looking for something you can't locate. Or buying another wooden stirring spoon although you already have 12.
Happy times are there when you are there.
