Hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is only 10 days away. Then you will blink and it will be Christmas and then the New Year. Before you know it we will be firmly into 2017.
Time flies by really fast these days and I am trying to slow down. A LOT!
Part of slowing down is simplifying your life. Unless you are going to quit your job, sell all your belongings and move to the middle of nowhere, this is really hard. But slowly you can cut things out, get rid of things and try to focus on what is most important to you.
One of the easiest ways to simplify is to get rid of unnecessary things. Think about how much time you spend each day putting things away. I do it constantly. If you didn’t have so much stuff, you wouldn’t need to pick up all the time. Do you see where I am going with this?
The broken toys, the books you have read, the clothing that (honestly) is never going to fit again. These are all items that can be donated to others. It can be really hard to let things go, I understand that. I just try to remember that there are people out there that can use these things and that helps me let go.
This is the best time of year for donations because as it gets colder, people in need, need so much more. Take some time this week and look thru your closets. Ask you children and friends to be part of this too.
Let’s all work towards letting go of things that we don’t need and giving them to people that can use them again.
