I am moving soon, and it’s probably the biggest move I have ever made in my life. It’s big because I’ve lived a long time in one location, and I have a lot of stuff. I forgot how much stuff I had. I don’t hang on to every little last thing, but I do hang on to a few things that I think will be important someday – or just fun to look at again.
This project has taken weeks, because I am purging as I go. Letting go of things I no longer need, in an attempt to make the move a little easier, and in an attempt to make life a little easier. I have a little saying on my desk that says, “She left pieces of her life behind her everywhere she went. It’s easier to feel the sunlight without them, she said.” And that makes a lot of sense to me. It certainly is easier to feel the sunlight when you let some things go.
