Last week I have went through all of my books and I am let go of 24 books.
I’m bringing four books to the consignment shop next week. I took ten to the bookstore that will pay me a little bit in trade. I put eoght in the donate box.
It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but it wasn’t easy either.
When you let go of stuff you let go of dreams. My dream was to have a whole wall of books in my office. Why? I don’t know. Maybe because that’s what other writers had in their offices.
I may not have a wall of books, but here is what I have.
I kept books I love. Books that I sometimes reference back to. Books that I will read at some point.
It felt good to go through my books and let some go.
This month my goal was to let go of 30 items. I hit that goal.
I also let go of a bra, three pairs of underwear, a pair of socks and a yoga dvd.
I do have goals for 2021 and I will share them with you in the beginning of February.
I’ve been taking it easy this month. At work we are still on 10 hours and Saturdays. The virus is still a concern there. I feel like a dodge it every day. I’m trying to get enough rest and take care of myself.
It feels good to write a post again.
I will definately be posting more in February.
I miss sharing my life with yiu.

I, too, love shelves full of books. But there often is no room, and there are other things you wish to display among the shelves. So I donated all the books I’d never read or flip through again, so someone else could take pleasure from them as I did. I kept the rest, and alternated them with things that also meant something to me, like my first art fair purchase and a candy dish from my m. It all balances perfectly. Yours will too!
