Today's goal is one that will be hard for me.
I'm getting rid of stuff.
One of the things I'm removing from my life is the stovetop melted mess. Yes, I still have that. No idea why, since all it does is sit on my countertop and remind me of a rice cooking failure.
"Remember that time you failed as a woman?" it whispers tauntingly.
"Yeah," I respond miserably. Well, no more!
The second thing that's exiting my life is a bag of shoes I don't wear. We're talking years since the last wear. It's time for them to leave my closet and find other feet. I'll be donating those somewhere they'll get some love.
The last thing I'll be giving away are some items I know my friends admire. I don't need them, don't use them, and only have them because I like to own things.
Some of you are probably so bored out of your skull by this list. But getting rid of things is really hard for me. I am looking around my apartment -- and it is FULL and it is currently a MESS -- and I see nothing that needs to leave. Despite knowing many, many people live with far less than what I have, I can't imagine not having every.single.thing here.
So... like I said, this is hard for me. But it's a good beginning in terms of purging my belongings, and I can know that doing so might have benefited a few people in tiny ways.
How are the rest of you doing in your week of slight improvements?
