Getting rid of stuff isn't difficult.
Getting rid of a lot of stuff isn't difficult.
Getting rid of a lot of stuff as you're nearing the end of the month is a bit more of a challenge.
As with any new habit, at the beginning it's all exciting and new. As I embarked on the Minimalism Game for March, I was pumped at the thought of getting rid of almost 500 items.
I got started with all the unbridled enthusiasm one could possibly have. I was practically giddy with excitement as I proudly got rid of one item after another.
I hit the halfway point and was still in my stride. This is easy, I thought. No problem, I said to myself.
And then the 25th day hit, and suddenly I came to a screeching halt.
What happened? How was I on a roll for over three weeks and then suddenly whammy?!
Part of it has to do with running out of stuff that was easily seen. Now I'm having to work harder and dig deeper. That's good though. I'm really looking through stuff and making tough decisions. I still continue to ask myself, if I was going to move tomorrow could everything I want to take with me fit in my car?
I'm not there yet, but I'm getting closer. It's time to go see what I can find.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
