My one month adventure of scaling down will always continue from this day forward…….

Starting to feel better about myself and feeling accomplished who would think after retiring one would need to feel accomplished. I am making a promise to myself that I will not get something just to be getting it anymore, if I don’t need it I will not get it just because I “want” it, gotta have a “need” this day forward yep!

I have been “working on me” so that I can respond differently to situations — and I am changing the dynamics of my life. I have been one of those who has had too much when if fact I did not need all that much…if that makes any sense. Some say do more with less and less is more. Who needs 7 vehicles? Who needs boocoo t-shirts, sneakers, shoes, jeans, etc….I am not wasting another day fulfilling my life with “stuff” I feel great about everything that I am doing and less is more! Moving Forward and loving it.

Had another day of getting rid of stuff that I have had an emotional attachment to. I just kept telling myself let it go and threw it in the bag. I also said to myself if I haven’t used it or seen it lately it is gone. Really is a tough thing to do, but I am loving not having all this crap lying around and in draws, closets and in containers. I had emptied out some containers and ended up putting stuff back into them the other day, so today I took those same container and got rid of stuff again, what a cycle this has been WOW…..

continuing to scale down the process is still going on after 3 weeks. Made a huge impact but still have more to go but feeling really good to be from beneath a bunch of stuff that had me bogged down and never really realized it until I had an epiphany in which motivated me and I can’t seem to let go of it and I don’t want to let go of it cause I am not going to get bogged down like this again. Lesson for me is that too much of something is not always a good thing, even if you may think it is. —feeling accomplished. I will never look at having so much “stuff” the same way again!

Don’t judge me by my past I don’t live there anymore.
