As I continued to think about the things that do not bring me joy and happiness, I hatched a plan to assist me with the removal of things that aren’t bettering life in someway. A goal that will keep me accountable throughout the year!
I have decided to remove one thing each day in 2017 that isn’t useful, or bringing happiness into life. I had some catching up to do; as I didn’t get this idea until very early on January 3rd. Let me show you what has already been liberated from my home and life!
Now I know you might be looking at these pictures and wondering whether or not I have lost my mind. Let me assure you the only item of any value or worth anything is the Sonicare Toothbrush. It is something we recently won as a door prize, we have no use for a kids toothbrush so I gave it to someone who could make use of it. I also recycled 3 empty boxes, 2 of which were for items we no longer have. As a runner I can assure I do still have and use that foam roller. I just don’t really need the box. The final item was a partially used tub of protein powder that expired more than 2 years ago. That was hidden on a shelf in the pantry. There you have it, my first four days of simplifying my life.
I know, there were no big sacrifices here, most of it was ‘junk’ therefore it was easy to get rid of. One has to start somewhere, I didn’t run a full marathon the first day I ran. I will allow myself some grace on this project as well.
So far I am enjoying this project and pleased with the results.
