It's a work in progress. Simplicity, that is.
I'm in the midst of trying to create a studio/office space that is both soothing and functional.
It is no easy task. The letting go of 'stuff' can be difficult. But it also can be exhilarating!
These are the four questions I ask myself when faced with the decision to toss or keep:
1. What is the worst thing that could happen if I toss it and should have kept it?
2. What would be the cost to replace the item (if possible) if I ever should need it again?
3. If it's a memory keepsake, is there another way to keep and honor the memory without having to keep the 'thing'?
4. Is there someone (person or organization) that could benefit from having this instead of me hanging on to it needlessly.
Most of the time the answers to these questions are clear, and the decision is therefore easier.
I'm taking the first step, I'm learning to let go. A work in progress.
