I have been in rampant cleaning and uncluttering mode.

Ask my best friend Lisa or my parents, I am not one to hold onto things. Mementos from a random vacation I barely remember, gone. Something you gave me from your random vacation that means nothing to me, gone. My one hold over was books and even that has been dwindling. I am finally getting rid of all the series I loved in middle in high school that I no longer really like but still have since I have the entire series, many are gone. I once added up that I had more than 3000 books. I bet that number is now closer to 1000 or less.

I caught myself staring at random things I had lined up on one shelf and wanting to ditch all of it.

My current dream is to pack exactly what I really want to keep and walk away from the rest, to a new life with no closets full of boxes of crap and papers I “must” save.I would ditch all the random things and detritus from my childhood, school, and college in a heartbeat.

That is my problem, my gut says to toss it all and walk away. But I do not know if this is running away or just trying to start over.

  1. The clutter-buster with several books out, Brooks Palmer (http://brooks-palmer.blogspot.com/), would give you two thumbs up for being able to recognize things that don’t fit you don’t fit your life anymore.

    (I keep reading his somewhat fru-fru new-agey posts in the hopes that I’ll be able to unclutter more of my life… as a person with many hobbies that center around art, it’s very hard to let go of things that I can see another purpose for…. the problem is that i don’t have enough TIME to make all of those things happen….. :/ ….. so they pile up……

    • Yes, the problem with “hobby” clutter is I often pick my hobbies back up, so you cannot just toss the stuff but I have downsized it a fair bit, like getting rid of the soddering things I no longer use at all.

  2. the reception fades the signals breaking up and am I moving on or am I giving up? If you walk away from this with anything live your life today.
