i have been going through a bit of minimalism withdrawal lately. over the span of 36 days, i will be in town for only seven – and those seven have been filled with visiting relatives, spending time with my kids, and meetings at work. as a result, i have had nothing to report about my personal minimalism efforts (maybe you have noticed). and even worse, i have been itching to get back to the job that i started 45 days ago.
luckily, this evening (friday) i was able to sneak in an hour of minimalization around the home. i was quickly drawn to the storage room downstairs and went to work. old toys, old knick-knacks, old books, old tools, and old boxes went flying. 4 large trash bags tied and ready for the dump later, i feel satisfied. i have had my minimalism fix.
i wonder what i would have said if somebody had me told when i was 21 that i would soon be spending friday nights celebrating the trash that i have collected… oh well, maybe if somebody had told me when i was 21 to stop buying stuff, i wouldn’t be in this mess today.
