it's just stuff

i spend a lot of time writing and talking about the emotional and cultural value of our things.  the meaning that our possessions take on in our lives and why it is important to honor that material world.

but i would like to suggest that when our things become stressful-- during times when we are moving or going through a life transition-- it can also be helpful to remember that it is all just stuff.  stuff we can live without, stuff we don't really need, stuff that costs us money in time, cleaning, and storage.  it's okay to let go of stuff, okay to remember that we don't have to be defined by the things we surround ourselves with.

let go!  feel the relief!  enjoy the new space created by having less stuff!

and then watch what happens...

happy saturday!
