Cautiously hopeful

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I have been consistent in dealing with letting go of stuff for the past few days.

I have shredded til the shredder overheated.
I let go of magazines and all those wannabes for "sometime_in_the_future" collages.
I let go of torn out pages of recipes, findable on the internet.
I let go of torn out catalog pictures from the 'wannabe_part_of_your_stuff' pile. And oh so many emails with cute stories, quotes, pictures, keeping only the ones which touched my heart or made me laugh out loud.

I felt really anxious - the "what_if_I_need_this_later" tension, "knot_in_my_stomach" kind of anxiety. I felt it, but worked past it this time.

I am hopeful - cautiously hopeful, but, nevertheless, hopeful.

On that thought, it's time for yoga class - breathing, relaxing - a nice reward!

    I thought I was the only one who was being run over with "paper stuff"!! LOL. I've been tossing/shredding, etc. for awhile now, but doesn't seem like I'm making headway!

    That's really good work you did! I have trouble with things like deleting old emails too, working on letting things go and admitting I'm not using/loving/enjoying them, they are not an active part of my life and it's time to let go when I don't even have a plan on how and when to use them. But it's so hard!

    I know that paper clutter is the hardest for me to get rid of. Remembering that so much of the paper we are saving can easily be found on he internet, if we really want it, does make it easier for me as well.
    Good job! You deserve that yoga class!
