Everyone reaches a point in their lives when it becomes time to relinquish the past to itself and move forward with renewed motivation, vigor, and hope. Whether your yesterday was good, great, or not so great, the potential still is that your greatest days, moments, and achievements lie ahead of you. Some of your fondest memories are still yet to be made.
For some, moving forward means leaving people and places behind. It’s like disconnecting from an old boyfriend, staying away from the places where trouble use to always find you, or steering clear of discouraging or abusive friends for the love of a healthier crowd of acquaintances. For others, moving forward means releasing inhibitions and taking that first step to live out a dream; that dream of being a college graduate, a famous actor, or a world traveler. And for another group of people, moving forward is as plainly described as letting go of things.
If holding on to a closet full of too small or oversized clothing, an unused engagement ring, an unlived in house, or a quaint beach front lot is full of past memories that keep you from moving forward and enjoying the life that you have ahead of you, it might be time to look into donating or selling those things. Even, if your present is riddled with thoughts of yesteryear that prevent you from indulging in the potential joy for today, you might need to take a serious look into what steps you can take to let go of what ails your well-being.
Local donation centers, often seen as thrift stores, will take your donations of clothing, shoes, jewelry, toys, electronics, appliances, and other household items during regular business hours. Most are set up as revenue stations for charities, and what is sold to the public of your items will be used as proceeds to fund the operations of that specific charity. You can check your local phone directory for a list of donation centers and thrift stores in your area.
Some online search engines have their own classified sections where you can list your items for sale to the general public. And auction houses, these days, are set up for online bidding so that the potential audience for the viewing of what you’re selling is widely broadened. Your options to sell a home range from selling it yourself to hiring a real estate agent to selling to a real estate investor. The same options apply when selling land; but, in this case, selling your land fast and for cash will happen when you sell it to a private land investor. Most people find that this is the way to go.
So, today, make a bold decision to enjoy today and live for tomorrow.
