Brian used to worry about all the stuff he was surrounded by when his kids recently moved back from the UK.
You see, his adult kids had left a long time ago and Brian and his wife downsized their five-bedroom house to a more manageable property to enjoy the freedom that only comes once the family have moved out!
But life lately for all of us has taken some unexpected twists and turns and ex-pat Kiwis are returning home in droves. And when adult kids move back home ... all their stuff moves with them.
This is Brian's story "I love my kids dearly, but I was resenting them moving back home ... not because they were there, we are family, but because I felt my space was being invaded and the life I had created with my stuff was now chaotic and I was tripping over all the stuff I had rearranged to make room for everyone"
"I was spending my days unhappy about the situation until I realised it was holding me back from enjoying my life with my adult kids I had missed so desperately when they were overseas".
"It was at that point, I made the decision to de-clutter the stuff I didn't need every day and move it into self-storage".
"Now my relationship with my kids is better and we have time together that is meaningful".
Is there something you need to let go of?
