Lately I've been feeling overwhelmed.
I've had to step back and take a cold, critical look at where I am, and where I'm going.
One big thing i've noticed is that through the years my life has become cluttered: physically and emotionally.
I have made the decision to de-clutter it.
I started with something small... my library books.
I've always had a pile of library books on my night-stand.
Just looking at that pile puts me off reading.
And I forget about the books (which I am not reading)
And the fines start piling up.
So, I returned all those books, I "just had to read".
And I picked one book from our home library (yes, it is a rather well-stocked and current library), and started reading it.
I read for 2 nights...
And finished the book.
And loved it.
Next I sent back the rented DVD's that were sitting on the mantle.
Movies I "just had to watch" but didn't get around to even breaking them out the case.
Sent them back.
To keep the momentum going, I picked up a small pile of scrapbooking supplies, and auctioned them off on E-Bay.
And they were sold.
Then I packed a big box full of supplies and donated it to a non-profit organisation which auctions off goods at Christmas.
So, the scrappy pile is being reduced...
How do you de-clutter your life?
