I desire to own less. This could result in:
freedom to do other things without feeling like I should deal with clutter instead
a light feeling
less to clean
maintaining more easily – new floors, painting
moving/downsizing more easily
spending less time finding things
freeing up beautiful space for other purposes
having my house be a refuge and place of peace
being able to start things without having to clean up first (desk, school room, kitchen)
Right now, I have blinders on. The clutter is not really taking up my time, because I do not move it around much or clean it. We have routines that keep the house fairly tidy. But clutter’s presence is affecting my state of mind. I am not convinced yet that I will have more resources if I own less. But if I do, I would like to be present for my family and spend focused time with them. I also want to be available for others in their times of need.
I desire to be a peaceful, joyful person and bring peace, joy, and rest to those around me.
This is my why. What is yours?
