My friend Bindu Wiles, creator of the famed 21.5.800 project, writer, coach, Buddhist, and friend extraordinaire, has launched her second online community project, The Shed Project. It’s about letting go of what no longer serves us, be it extra weight, too many clothes, books we don’t need anymore, Negative Nancy’s in our lives, or even emotional baggage. I’m so looking forward to losing it for the next eight weeks, starting today.
I was honored to interview Bindu for today’s launch of the “Shedventure”. I launched Glimpse TV with an interview with Bindu so it all feels very perfect and full circle to be kicking off the letting go together. Today, Bindu wrote that she is, “… letting go of the desire/need to present myself polished, edited, and with diffused lighting.” And thus, she chose to post an uncut version.
I’m 100% IN for The Shed Project. In no particular order, here are some things that I’ll be letting go of: my desire to appear perfect, financial vagueness and irresponsibility, possibly my home in New York City (more on this in a later post), books that I have not read yet and have no intention of reading, my tendency to prioritize others’ needs before my own, the stacks of paper that are piled in my office, some physical weight, clothes that I haven’t worn in a year or more, my duvet cover and shams, old, rotting resentments, conscious and unconscious agreements I made with my parents that are now outmoded, email newsletter subscriptions that I never read, beliefs about myself and the world that no longer serve me, and extra toiletries, specifically hair products, that I don’t use weekly at a minimum.
Come join Bindu and me for eight weeks of losing it on this shedventure. C’mon. Letting go will be more fun together. I promise. You can thank me later. REGISTER HERE TO LET GO (it’s less than $5/week!) (I’m not an affiliate of The Shed Project…just an incredible believer in the power of letting go.)
What are you ready to let go of?
What are you afraid of letting go of?
What does letting go even mean to you?
Have you ever let go of something and had it replaced by something that surprised you or was better than the thing you let go of? Tell me the story.
