…If you don’t then let me go
I can’t take another minute
Of a day without you in it
If you love me let it be
If you don’t then set me free
Take the chains away
That keep me loving you…
(If you can’t see the video about here is a link to hear Livvy (Olivia Newton John) sing)
Is this what your clutter is begging of you while you just keep it hanging on. Like a sad old romance that you cling to because it is better than being lonely. Having that stuff around even though you don’t love it any more secures you in your comfort zone while it wastes away unused and unloved. Is that anyway to reward it for it’s years of devotion to your needs.
Let it go let it be free to find someone who will truly love it for what it is not just keep it for convenience sake. There is someone out there who will love it more than you. Perhaps someone who can’t afford to buy new, someone money savvy who knows secondhand is often as good as new except cheaper or someone who needs what you don’t and would rather buy secondhand than add more pressure on the worlds resources.
Take the chains away that bind it to you, it is holding you down as much as you are it.
Today’s Declutter Item
Some time back my son decided to declutter his Coca Cola collection. It has been lingering about my garage in the vane hope that I would find a way to sell it for him. Ebay was not very successful with this portion as I only made about 99c per item. Hardly worth the effort.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
A favour from a friend, dodging all the rain showers, decluttering something that has been on my radar for ages, a nice lamb curry for dinner, getting all my chores done and Pickers on TV later. All in all a good day.
