Is there “junk” in your life? What kind? How do you get rid
I grew up thinking that abundance was having a lot of things. It was a time when collections were “cool” and you could dazzle your friends with your buckets of happy meal toys and all of those beanie babies.
Adults had collections too from model cars to porcelain dolls to tools and trinkets,ties, shoes and earrings. The value of your life was measured by your things (not really, but sort of.) Even being able to whip out different shades of lipstick or a few scents of lotion and hand-sanitizer in an instant was a skill to be admired.
The older I get, the more I start to realize that this clutter makes me tired. It is easy to accumulate stuff. The real issue is finding a place for everything. And not just a place that “works” or “fits”…. It is an art to find a place for something to belong.
Can you look at your possessions and say, ” I want you here. You add joy and value to my life? Let’s find a good place for you.” Not that you would really talk to your stuff, but I know that I often look around thinking, “okay, now where on earth am I going to put it?”
I would like to live in a world where I don’t have to hide my stuff behind closed doors and closed cabinets.
There is true magic and beauty in simplicity.
