Taking Time for NOW


I picked up a book this morning called "It's All Too Much". I've only read a few pages, but it's forcing me to ask myself whether the Things I Have In My Life are taking me toward or away from my life goals.

I ask this because I've been thinking about ALL THOSE BOOKS I have squirreled away in closets and out in the garage. I don't really have time for them because I'm doing my paper beads and teaching those college classes.

But I'm not very brave about getting rid of things. The book asks, "Who's the boss? You or your possessions?"

Ay yi yi!

  1. fly lady says to spend ten minutes once a week running around with a garbage bag and throwing in 30 items. Big, small, doesn't matter. Close the bag and don't look in it and don't let anyone else look in it; throw it away/donate.

    I don't think your books are impeding your life, but it does feel invigorating to get rid of junk. We just went through the bottom of one of Gavin's toy trunks. Shhh, don't tell him.
