I’m digging deeper and deeper into my most recent introspective journey. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable, and a lot of the time it’s eye opening. The book that I’m reading right now, The Happiness Project has all sorts of interesting perspective. The first chapter was about organization. Toss, restore, organize. The author recommends tackling clutter & excess… which comes in several varieties. The three I focused on were things I use all the time, things I never use, and things I’ve always hoped to use but haven’t. The stuff and clothes I never use (leopard high heels), immediately got put in a bag for donation (I based this on stuff I haven’t touched in literally 12 months). The clothes I use all the time, I organized and hung in plain view. The content I’ve always hoped to use but haven’t yet… I set in a pile and I’m giving myself one month to work it into my lifestyle and my wardrobe. If by January 15th, this stuff still has not been implemented. To Goodwill that pile will go. I cannot tell you how freeing it is to recycle, reduce, reuse and give away stuff that literally has no meaning to me any longer. I highly recommend it.
