#1LinerWeds – More With Less

Day 297

I am discovering mysterious side benefits of the contentment I have achieved at this point in my life.

Less is more these days.

Less things to dust, less things to move, less things to worry about.

I am no longer tempted to buy things I do not need. I actually try to find things I can get rid of. It makes me feel lighter. Maybe this is why looking for a car has been hard for me.

Less emotional baggage is freeing, too. I am firmly rooted in the idea that all we have is today. Yesterday is gone and untouchable except through memories. Tomorrow is also out of reach.

Letting go of things and worries and regrets makes room for more joy and well-being.

Finding my way to living in the present has been life altering for me.

“The more you know, the less you need.”

  1. I have also stopped buying ‘stuff’, though I confess to having far too many DVD films and books still. I find it hard to throw stuff away, so not having it in the first place is the better option. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Pete, we literally have huge plastic boxes full of dvds and bookshelves full of books. The books are the most difficult to part with. Other house clutter is easier for me to pass on to charity. My most difficult possessions are family pieces and unfortunately, the next generation has no memories associated with those things.

  2. As I travel through this process of decluttering I feel less heavy. After dusting and cleaning hundreds of salt and pepper shakers I plan on culling my collection once school starts and I am done cleaning.

    1. Cleaning our clutter does make us question keeping them, doesn’t it? I have a lot of cobalt poison bottles I once collected. Those may end up on eBay soon.

    1. Wilma, that was so beautifully stated. Yes! Less stuff means more time. Thank you for sharing your blog. It resonated with me.
