It forces you to declutter!
I’ve wanted to live a simpler life for a very long time. I have too many books (yes, Virginia, there IS such a thing as too many books), too many shoes, too many mismatched dishes and knickknacks. Too many of so many things.
I will be giving clothing to the Goodwill and the Salvation Army.
Books to libraries and other excellent causes.
This is a huge move, but I choose to see it for what it is: a new start. A chance to live a simpler, more streamlined life. A real opportunity to leave behind a lot of things that weigh me down, and not just physical things, either.
Old concepts, that I have long since outgrown, but for some reason, persist in holding on to, instead of letting go.
There are many obstacles. This is not a small move.
How will I cope?
By keeping my feet planted firmly in the Right Now, and letting my vision reach to the new house.
Time passes so quickly. Here I sit, in the kitchen of one house, and I know perfectly well that one day, when I am journaling or blogging, I will realize that I have made the shift, and it wasn’t so hard after all.
