Good afternoon! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was filled with planning Erwin’s surprise birthday party. It did turn out to be a surprise (thankfully) but unfortunately I didn’t whip out the camera, so I don’t have any photos to share.
A New Perspective on Moving
This weekend Erwin and I also ordered our new sectional for the apartment we’re moving into next Sunday (!!). I’ve also been ruminating on what I want to exfoliate before I move. I thought about doing a Throw Out 100 Things challenge or something similar. But then I realized, I was looking at the move backwards.
I really should think about “What do I want to bring to the new place? Which of my possessions fit the vision I have for the new space?” And then the challenge is to only bring those items that match the new space, the new vision. So instead of planning on bringing everything, I’m going to start compiling all of the things that I want to bring. After I have everything separated this way, the things that aren’t in the “want to bring” pile are getting exfoliated. End of story.
Sure, my space will not be exactly the way I want right away, but over time I’ll have the resources to fill the new space with the rest of the items I want. And this way I’m not dragging things to the new space unconsciously, without an intention to use them.
I’m pretty pumped about this new paradigm. I’ll let you know how it goes. Anyone else done something similar?
