Had an aha the other night. While I was giving away things, I suddenly felt buoyant. Like I was no longer trapped by things. Like I have the freedom to choose my destiny unfettered by the concern over what to do with my stuff. It’s the power to let go knowing I can pick it up if I suddenly need it later.
In a disposable society, it’s about choosing only to have things that matter. It’s an emotional shift as well as a physical one.
