I have been assessing myself as a human, and I’m not too pleased with what I see. I hold onto pointless material things and don’t pay any attention to the things I think matter in life. I find myself sneering at the people who come to the mall (my place of employment) and buy senselessly, without any real need for what they are buying. I need to clear my life of all the things I hold on to that I don’t need, and never did.
-I will only keep the clothing that I wear on a regular basis; (a couple tee shirts, tanks and pants.)
-I will keep very few pieces of jewelry; (handmade and sentimental.)
-I will keep the few shoes I wear; (sneakers.. the rest are of such low quality I see them falling apart after a few more wears.)
-I will keep the books I plan to read, or re-read.
-I will organize and store the paperwork I need. (toss the rest.)
-I will keep the craft supplies I use. (This one is tricky.. you know what I mean you crafters out there.)
I want to live a life free of these things I think I need to keep around me to feel accomplished. If there isn’t something adorning every surface I feel like it’s empty. If I don’t have a million choices to wear, I feel naked. I need to break free of this thinking. I’ll just donate as much as I possibly can, or even a yard sale would work, but that’s too much organizing and it feels selfish. (PLUS there’s so much time to be all “I’ll hang on to this for a while..”
It’s time for an all out life cleanse. 1 year ago
