555 Days Towards Level 9000: Day 19.
Time Awake: 8:40 a.m., then 9:08 a.m., then 10:40ish. A morning of dragging ass.
Topics spoken about on any given day are not one-shots. It’s not done with, to just simply move on to something new. Some topics require revisiting.
Today, I revisit clutter.
My clutter. The possessions I have and don’t necessarily need. And I’ve tended to a small chunk of it.
There is a bag of books ready to go to the library tomorrow (unless the snow is disastrous, then later in the week they will be donated). There are bags of clothes that I don’t wear, which will be donated to St. Mary’s. There is my collection of dishes that I just don’t use. They shall be donated to Good Will (or an equivalent).
There’s my collection of clever T-shirts… I haven’t gotten to those yet. But when I own roughly 50 T-shirts and wear about 15 of them, that’s too many to have.
It’s progress. It feels good and is important for personal headspace.
Things don’t matter. They weigh you down. That line from Fight Club, “The Things You Own End Up Owning You” remains True.
Forget things. Own your Life.
