‘All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.’ – Henry Ellis
I have 16 GB of storage free on my laptop. Really. I save a lot. I have a hard time letting go…
My computer isn’t the only place I save a lot. I keep ticket stubs, passes and little mementos from trips. I have purple eyes shadow from years past; just in case I am in a purple mood. I have a guide book to Bora Bora that is 20 years old. I have a pasta maker, punch bowl and popcorn popper, none of which have been used in years.
I really am not a hoarder. I like a neat and tidy house. Just don’t look in my closets, there is some cleaning that needs to be done.
I keep stuff just in case. Maybe I will need one someday and I wouldn’t want to pay for another one. Right?
My computer issue has shown me I can’t hold on to it all. I have started going through my computer, deleting what I really don't need. I am also going through my closets, giving away things I don’t use. I think when I have less ‘stuff’ I appreciate all I do have even more…
Today I am joining Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds. My finds are these little flowers and the realization it is okay to let go, donate and toss when necessary.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great weekend!
