Purging

i had so much i didn't know what i had.

The culling process continues, in earnest. I sold furniture and got rid of some big pieces last year and also had a yard sale, and amazingly enough I still have a house full of stuff somehow! Gasp So it continues on. I've been in the music mix making process for someone and got out some tunes, and am discovering stuff I've never listened to and didn't know I had. I honestly think this applies to a lot of what I "have," or what has had me.

Simplifying life/reducing one's possessions allows the things you really love to be front, center and enjoyed. I'm starting to see that now. I have had this thing where I SAVE things for later... absorb compliments later, read things later, look at things later, use things later ... and later might as well be never. :/

I had so much I didn't know what I had. So here's to discovering things for the first time right here in my possession. I have all I need. And to moving all I can along so that I can be even more present for my life and the important things in it, like people and experiences.

Letting go of "stuff" allowed the world to collapse behind me as I moved, so I became nothing more or less than who I simply was: Me. ~ Dee Williams

When you don’t get rid of things you aren't using, you are blinding yourself to a critical part of the consumer experience: what happens to things when you’re done with them. When you have the habit of periodically getting rid of things you aren't using anymore, your brain begins to create links between the beginning (buying) and the end (selling) of all of your stuff.” ~ Tynan, Superhuman by Habit: A Guide to Becoming the Best Possible Version of Yourself, One Tiny Habit at a Time
