We are what we keep?
It’s time to downsize. I’ve had thought about this since I was a kid. We used to play,
if you could only save one thing from a burning house, what would it be?
I don’t have my vanity anymore, but I do have some things that I value. The bigger question is,
what can I live without?
How many coffee mugs do I use in a week? Are these things enhancing my life, or weighing me down?
I want to lighten my load, free myself up for more fun and adventure. I don’t want to dust knick-knacks.
But, I’m learning that I can’t just jump in and toss things away. Before I can discard or give away, I have to learn to the simple art of detachment.
A lifetime of accumulation- books, pictures, little collectibles- I will weigh the cost of holding on to each.
I’m excited to begin this next chapter, and I am ready to shed another layer of the past. There are very special pieces that I will bring with me, but what does not bring me pleasure will be set aside.
I already feel lighter.
