It is Saturday afternoon. I have been unpacking, cleaning & rearranging since I woke this morning around nine. It feels good to have two rooms close to complete.
Before we packed up & moved into the new house, I honestly thought that Brawn & I didn’t have that much stuff. After all, I have been clearing & decluttering for some time now. I generally get rid of a garbage bag full of stuff a month & send it off to charity.
But as I began packing & moving I was hit with the shocking realization that Brawn & do indeed still have a lot of shit.
Last night I received an email from Zen Habits- it was about a woman who got diagnosed with MS which led to her letting go of always wanting more & ridding herself of most of her stuff. It was truly inspiring.
It made me think that I don’t want to have to be diagnosed with a life changing illness to have my wake up call.
Sure, I have been letting go of things for a while now. But there is still plenty more I can weed out of my life.
While rearranging my living room I found myself wanting to put less things on shelves & tables. Without all the items sitting around collecting dust, I have more breathing space.
Who doesn’t want that?!
Right now I am pondering the things in my life that exist & enrich my time on Earth & the things that exist & take away from creating a magical existence.
The big item on my plate is the Television, cable, & DVR.
Do I really need this?
Does it add to what I am working to create or does it take away from it?
Is it truly serving me?
I sure will miss the Ghost Whisperer >smiles<
How many of you have gone so far as to let go of the sacred thing that is, Television? How is your life better or worse without it there?
