This is for those moments when you DON’T want to let go.

Downsizing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and today we’ll talk about WHY.

Sometimes letting go is the last thing you need.

Guess what? You don’t have to!!

Today’s S.O.L. STORY brought me to tears more than once.

Here’s why it’s okay to hold on.

Sometimes “things” allow us to hold onto great memories.

Things matter because people matter.

YOUR things matter because you matter.

Here’s how you can keep holding on:

1. Redefining your LOVE.

2. Redefining your LIKE.

3. Redefining your LOSS.

Hold the “things” that matter because it matters to YOU.
