Thursday Thoughts & Tidbits

Watching Oprah yesterday, I heard something that connected immediately with my overwhelming urge to purge:

"Less space. Less stuff. More life."

My Soul jumped up and screamed "YES!"

(As of right now, I have no "tidbit" for today. Will update if one comes to mind!)

Yes but... wouldn't it be "Less stuff. MORE space. More life." ??? I agree with the sentiment behind it though!

Jo said...

The point was that you live in a smaller space, with less things and therefore have more life! I loved it!

Kalanna said...

so, i want the confession. what did you give away?!

Jo said...

Kalanna, I haven't the foggiest idea what you mean...?

Kalanna said...

the quote talks about being happier living with less stuff, so i was wondering what stuff did you give away to fulfill the "Yes" that your heart heard?

i hear the same thing every so often. i never know what i'll give away next. sometimes it's totally unexpected things and sometimes it's things i never should have brought home to begin with. ;)

Ah ha! Now I see! lol

I haven't given away anything yet, but I have in 1 bag 13 books to donate to the library and in another bag 3 pairs of never worn flip flops & 5 shirts which are still nice just too small for me now which will go to the thrift shop. It's not much but it's a start and I feel lighter already! (Also got rid of 1 huge bag of trash).

that's a pretty good start my dear!

this past week i decided to get rid of two pieces of cast iron cookware that were sentimental in value but that i never use. posted them to kijiji hoping someone would buy them, but no bites so far.

I always want to do this but then I have all of these things that belonged to my ancestors and I just can't make myself part with them.

MissB said...

yes yes yes.

Jo said...

Lisa, I definitely don't get rid of things that mean that much to me! I watched my Mom make that mistake.

Exactly Miss B!
