Have you ever secretly wished for a fire in your life?
I have to be honest–part of me has. (Though, a hurricane would be more appropriate from where I’m standing.)
I know this is extreme, and, of course, not something I would actually want to have to deal with….but the thought of it is liberating. I just finished reading an article that addresses this topic, and felt that I could definitely relate.
Even now, after all the work I’ve done on my home. I look around, and there’s still so much left I could be rid of it. Even the things I know I’m not emotionally ready to release, I am fully aware that I could do without them.
That’s what’s so intriguing about the idea of a fire. It would completely take the decision-making process away, leaving you with only what you needed to survive.
Again, I don’t actually want to deal with the aftermath of a house-fire, and my heart aches for those who have actually had to live the nightmare of one. I just find myself weary these days of all the decisions, and this is only because I want to go further.
I need to go further.
I’m giving myself a little time–seeing as how the last purge was a pretty big one–before moving on to the next step with my possessions. And truthfully, I feel like my focus for the moment needs to be on my health.
I’m good at sticking to something once I start it, and lately my health/diet has suffered due to my focus on other things. This is one area that I know I can’t half-ass, so I want to get back on the health wagon, immediately, and build new, permanent, healthy habits. I may do a post on this subject when I feel I’ve arrived at my lagom.
Do you secretly wish to be stripped of some (or all) of the decision-making when it comes to decluttering your life?
