Tourists and The Junk we Love to Collect
When do we switch from tourists to travelers? What is it about the junk we collect as we move through life? As we have said many times, we hope to become full-time travelers. Right now we are getting ready to move again, and I look at all of the boxes and wonder how will we ever do it. I think to myself I want to throw it all away but as I pick something up the intellectual side of me gets squashed by the emotional. And I add another box to the pile. Why do we keep it?
I’ve read something recently about how to declutter. It says to pick up something and if it speaks to you keep it. Damn, everything screams at me. <sigh> Some day I hope. For now, I’m looking around at the towers of boxes and dream of living in a converted van, a small apartment in Spain or an RV traveling the world.
(I’d like to give credit to the declutter person. If you know, please post so I can link back. I think it’s a book you buy)
