It’s funny how things come full circle.
When I was younger, my life focused on acquisition. The list of things I wanted seemed endless. But as I became older and came to own more and more and more stuff, a funny thing happened…or didn’t happen. I didn’t become happier. I didn’t feel fulfilled. I didn’t feel successful. Instead I found that my stuff began to rule my life. My stuff owned me.
Now I have a new goal everyday. G.R.O.S.S. = Get Rid Of Some Stuff. Everyday I look for things to get rid of. Some days I get rid of whole boxes of stuff. On a really good day I get rid of a truck load of stuff. Funny enough, it feels just as good as buying stuff once felt!
