It’s been almost a month since we began to let go. What have I achieved? What have I learned?
We have given away or sold more stuff than I even knew we owned. Cupboards have been emptied, drawers dynamited and corners swept. But it doesn’t feel enough. There is so much more I want to go.
When you start to take out that which you don’t need or want you can see more clearly how much was there in the first place.
I have been doing Project333 for almost a fortnight and apart from a few tweaks I haven’t found it hard at all.
I have far too much in my wardrobe. It is liberating to only have a handful of clothes.
I thought I would struggle to let go of things I had been keeping for sentimental reasons. Books were a big issue. But when I realised I was hording things that I would never use again but still had so much life in them and could be used and enjoyed by other people it was easy.
I had let my emotions create a massive millstone which I moved from house to house but never used. It took up space and fed my feelings of guilt.
Decluttering doesn’t just affect your living space it changes you. I am unfit, I need to lose weight and I ought to drink less wine. I have known that for years. Now I want to declutter me as well as where I live.
I only have one life I don’t want to fill it or me with rubbish.
