Before this pandemic hit I took two copy paper boxes of stuff to my church for their annual garage sale. I didn’t get to take any more stuff because a week later the pandemic hit and the their doors were closed and the garage sale was cancelled.
During the last six months or so I didnt think about decluttering. I didnt buy a lot during this time because the stores weren’t open. I don’t buy alot of stuff on line and when the stores did open I didnt go.
The last week or two I’ve been feeling kinda heavy and bogged down and I couldn’t figure out why. I just thought it was anxiety or something because of the virus so I didnt pay any attention.
When I went to get my haircut last Wednesday, my hair stylist was telling me about how she was getting rid of the bar in her basement and how good she felt.
I light bulb went on! I wasn’t getting rid of anything. I haven’t decluttered in months.
So that night I brought home some boxes from work and put one in the living room. My goal is to fill it over the next week.
I think having all this to time to think during the last couple of months has made me realize what I need and what I really don’t. What I’m using and what I’m not.
I’m excited. I can’t wait to get back in track.
I forgot how good it felt to get rid of stuff!
I’m also getting items ready to take to the consignment shop.
You know what?
I haven’t crossed anything off of my finishing the unfinished list lately. I’ve been so focused on my writing that totally forgot about it. I’ll have to take a look at my list to see if there is anything I can cross of.
It feels like I am getting a little back to normal.
