I had a good day, today. Got up at 6:00 a.m., had a cup of coffee, got dressed and went to the office. During my lunch break, I walked to the nearby library to return two books and to borrow two more.
One is a book about long forgotten scientific discoveries of the ancient world; this promises to be interesting, but I haven't started reading it yet.
The other one
is living a minimalist life and decluttering. I started reading this one, but I was already mentally
arguing with the author half way into the Introduction! So, I don't
know how helpful that might be, but I'll read a bit more before I decide
whether to continue or not. I'm trying to motivate myself to do
another round of decluttering.
I tend to hold on to various items for sentimental reasons or because I am thrifty (can reuse, recycle, up-cycle, etc.). As a result, things tend to accumulate. I've done a fair amount of decluttering over the years (there was a time when I used to declutter 10 items a day), but now it's
the hard-to-part-with items that have survived previous declutterings
and they are stubbornly insisting on staying! However, I feel that it is time to do more decluttering. No doubt I'll be posting more about decluttering in the next few posts.
How was your day, today? Do you struggle with decluttering too? Or are you one of those people who have mastered the art of streamlining and keep possessions pared?
