Day Two---Letting Go!

In the morning while getting ready for our hike, I saw some hats hanging on the exercise bike and they have not been used for a while and my thought immediately was to gather them and put in my fifteen a day basket. Just right there is about one third of my fifteen items.

I knew when I get back from hiking it will be easy to find more items and sure did in my other hat collections.

I then switched to belts and scarves and just like that I have the fifteen items in no time. 

This process is doing wonder for my psyche and if you are on the fence, give it a try with one or two or five items. Trust me it does wonder for the soul!
Would love to hear from you if you take up the challenged and share your "Letting Go"

Letting Go 15 = 2015!

Happy New Year and as the Yorubas will say "Eku odun, eku iyedu o", . 
 It has been a great 2014 and I shared half of it with you with my blogging before I stopped cold mid year. I must confess, the trip to South Africa was awesome and so many things to share that I was rendered helpless as to the best way to blog about it. This helplessness led to inaction and the partial post never completed. I look forward to it completion and posting in the near future!

In the past I have made resolution with my key "one word" but this year, I am trying to face a weakness of mine. This is really big for me to be transparent about this problem ...that is letting go of things.   I must confess, I have a common artist disease of keeping items with intentions of incorporating into my art.  This condition has boiled over to other areas of my life and everything I have, I visualized artistic usage for it hence keeping it for future use.

one of the 15 items letting go-was planning on using for collages!
 God only knows when that will be so recently I was inspired by Tracy Verdugo purging of 10 items a day.  She was doing this for about a month and that go me thinking!  As part of my new year resolutions I will be letting go 15-items  and do it for 30 days and hopefully extend it further.

Thirty days will give me baby steps and let me take it one month at a time!
I challenged you in joining me in letting go. The item(s) could be 1 , 2, 5, 8, 10, 15, 20, 21,  25, using number combinations from 2015!  Chime in, would love to hear from you and let us be supportive of each other!
