Out With the Old . . .

Posted on

I have lately found joy in purging. Minimizing. Cutting out the clutter. Sweeping away the cobwebs. Downsizing.

Anticipating a possible move in the near future, I’ve been looking at my home and my life with new eyes. How did I accumulate so much “stuff”? Do I really need all those books and DVDs? Will I ever refinish those chairs, or complete that stained glass window?

Nope, so it’s gone.

Ahhhhhhhh.

And I find that same breath of relief when I begin to examine and eliminate bad habits – snacking in front of the TV, a glass of wine right after work instead of a 15- or 20-minute project, impatience in traffic. Just “stuff” accumulated over the years, but absolutely unnecessary.

This is a good perspective. I think I like it.
