I have the week off and besides having some fun, I’m cleaning out 2 closets for good! I will give away 50% of what is in the closet.
Let you know how it goes.!!! 23 months ago

I just realized I haven’t updated this goal in 4 years and my last entry had to do with books on the floor. Well…. yesterday, I ACTUALLY took the big pile of books off my living room floor and stuffed them into the trunk of my car and drove them to the thrift store. It’s the same pattern: purge like mad, then leave books on the floor for months (literally)... Some thing never change?
I’ve actually also been getting rid of stuff since November, when we explored the ideas of Saucha (purity) and Aparigraha (non grasping) in the Yoga Teacher Training course. It all began then, and it’s been ongoing, and I’d say I’m almost there. Which, in itself, is exciting. I’m almost done this goal!! Hooray!! 2 years ago
I have a clean house but I am actually hiding all the mess in the drawers and wardrobes! One day I will open them on everything will fall on me! I have to clean up all that. I am so bad at throwing things. 3 years ago
I hadn’t always been a packrat. I hadn’t always been the type to bring things in (or just have it come in) and leave it where it landed. I went through a bad period of depression that lasted until sometime last year. It’s gradually been getting better, and one thing that I notice now is that even though my depression is fading internally, my external environment (my room) is actually depressing… soooo, I’m giving myself until the end of DECEMBER to completely have it clean! And by “clean” I mean organized and de-cluttered enough so that I would not mind a complete stranger coming in and taking a peak at it. As of now, I’m mortified if my mother comes in, because I know how much she’ll start to nag and shame me about it being so messy. 3 years ago
I need to move in 3 months and I will have about a third of the space I use to have (moving out of a bedroom for one into a bedroom for two) but I am also moving out of my house into someone else’s.
I have started on this epic task and know that I need to throw things away even if it hurts to lose that item. I just don’t have the room to keep everything that means “something”. 3 years ago
