I agree less is better. It's as if our life cycle begins the addition and ends with subtraction.

I agree...the may need is hard to let go of. I am trying to downsize my life and make it less complicated and have reached a point where less is better.

That category "may need someday" is the hardest habit for me to break.

That's me too but I am not going to throw anything away that gives me joy. I rather be a little bit crowded but happy. emoticon I just need to look at the other stuff that I keep packing and moving and don't really use or need (and no emotional attachment - just stuff I "many need some day"). emoticon

I love this quote. I have been trying to "edit" my life... get rid of some stuff. Some is hard to let go of and I realize some of it is emotional attachment, but some of it is that the items brings joy to me by its beauty.

Interesting quote for me since I just moved to a new place. So, for the affirmation I will say that I have the power and desire to make my home happy and peaceful. emoticon emoticon emoticon

“When you wake up, think about winning the day. Don't worry about a week or a month from now -- just think about one day at a time. If you are worried about the mountain in the distance, you might trip over the molehill right in front of you. Win the day!” ― Drew Brees, Coming Back Stronger: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Adversity

I can use adversity in my life to grow, do well, and have peace within me. Outside pressures need not crush my insides. emoticon

Letting go of my need to be right today will truly give me peace.
