My husband jokingly calls me a hoarder. I prefer the term, “pack rat.” If you saw our garage, you’d probably think he’s more right than I am. Not to mention all the nicknacks I have on display around the house.
Over the last two weeks though? I’ve been going through this need to just purge stuff. We’ve already taken three back-seat loads of stuff to Goodwill, and one truck-bed full of stuff to the dump. And I am itching to send more out the door.
Today, I did a major purge on Twitter and Instagram, culling down my following counts. Its a shame Instagram had to go change their Terms of Service and ultimately negate using any third party apps to make THAT task easier. But it was also fun to go through my following list and remember when and why followed various accounts.
I think I mentioned in a previous post that when I start throwing things out, big changes tend to happen. Since I’m not actively searching for a change, per se, I have no idea if that will hold true or not again. But I suppose I will remain open to that possibility. I’m making room for the new, whatever it may be.
For over a year, I’ve very oddly started noticing the number 1234. Or some variation of it. 234. 123. 1243. Whatever the case may be… I look at the time and its 12:43. My husband and I had a hotel room number 234. It’s borderline becoming comical to me.
So I’ve searched the meaning of it. I mean, when it becomes so repetitious you eventually think it must mean something. And of course I’ve found as many explanations as there are websites.
Angel Number 1234 indicates that you may have to put some hard work and effort towards a new project, venture or important life-change, and these will be of long-term benefit to yourself and your loved ones. Trust that the work and effort you have put in towards achieving your goals and aspirations will be well worth your while and you will find long-term success and personal fulfillment.

And then there is…
When you repeatedly see the number sequences 123 or 1234, it’s a sign to simplify your life. The perfect sequence of 1, followed by 2, then 3, then 4, signals that it’s time for you to make your life more predictable and simpler. (http://www.angeltherapy.com/blog/meaning-123-and-1234)
I guess, when I really think about it, being in this frame of mine to do a massive purge, I’m following both of these meanings. I’m trying to simplify by getting rid of stuff that I’ve not needed in several years… why am I keeping it? Let it go and move on… And then within that, I’m opening the door for things my husband and I have worked towards and dreamed of happening… to actually happen.
1-2-3-4… let’s go!
