KonMari letting go series:
Sentimental item #1 Cookie Monster😢🥰

My first memorable gift I got from my college sweetheart was a Cookie Monster. He gave it to me after our first fight. Cookie Monster became a very special thing for me. 👫
I carried him everywhere and my friends started to notice it. When I was in a big car accident and was hospitalized for 5 days, everyone brought me some kind of Cookie Monster to the hospital. I think I ended up with 32 of them. 🏥

This was 22 years ago. My whole collection of Cookie Monsters came with me to every home I moved into since then. 🍪

When I KonMaried my home and did the joy check, half of them did not spark joy for me, so I set them aside. I could not bear the thought of them in a bag in the storage room of a thrift shop never to see the light again. I wanted them to be in a good home where they are loved. 💕

Then I found a perfect home. My friend’s Mom operates a day care and she was happy to adopt my Cookie Monsters. She said their kids would be happy to have them. That is the exact words I wanted to hear. 🧒🧒🏻🧒🏿

I gave them a bath, wiped off the dust as I sent them gratitude for all the years they kept me company. I do have space for them if I want to keep them, but they are no longer serving me. I would rather they go to a place where they can serve their life purpose. Sometimes it takes a while to find the right place, but it was worth waiting for. 🛀
If you do the KonMari process and let go of some items that are dear to you, it’s OK to take sometime to find a great place that you feel great about. 💓
Stay tuned for more sentimental letting go series.
