As this year comes to a close, it's a good time to assess the past year and set goals for the coming 12 months.
Some of 2023 can be relegated to a "junk drawer" from which we can determine what can be let go of and what is important there to retain. That drawer is often filled with a lot of stuff never used but there "just in case." Now is an opportunity to go through the contents of that drawer (and the year) and assess what's necessary and what isn't.
That junk drawer can be described as a receptacle for our internal stuff too. What the drawer contains is all of the things we have held on to for various reasons. It's a way of looking at possible space that can be used more efficiently and more logically.
With everything we deal with in our lives these days, it's a valuable exercise in viewing, weighing, sorting what we have kept. Some for good reason, some because we're just not ready to let that particular thing go, some in there because we think we just might need it later.
The end of a year can be a good start to the new one. Tackle that "drawer" and some good will come out of it. In Rome, they toss out of their windows stuff they no longer treasure to make room for what is truly important. We can do that too. It's not easy but it can be done. Try it. You'll like it.
