stuff gets in the way

Last night’s sunset peeking through the trees…

all these things

get in the way

blocking my clear vision

stuff that I’ve stuffed

here and there

distracts me from my mission

too much stuff

makes me feel stuffy 

every breath becomes a chore

with all this stuff 

stuffed everywhere

I can’t take it anymore!

I often complain about the view from my house.  I can’t see the sunset very clearly due to all the trees around us. I know-it’s a really insignificant problem to have, but I long to be out in the open air where I can gaze at the stars and see the sky for miles and miles.

Lately I have been feeling the same way about my home. I LONG to see open space in my rooms.  I can’t find anything, and I can’t see anything clearly because of all the STUFF that is stuffed everywhere.  We aren’t “hoarders” or anything, but we definitely have way too much stuff.  And all this stuff is consuming me- consuming my time, my thoughts, my energy…and it’s zapping me of my JOY!!

I am spending way too much time trying to find places for things, and way too much time looking for things I have miss-placed!

Having too many things leads to me having to make too many decisions…NO GOOD for a girl who already suffers from being indecisive!

So I am on a mission to GET RID OF STUFF and to restore order to my chaotic home.

less is more

more time to clearly see and enjoy the things and people I LOVE!

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy,and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:19-21

  2. I know exactly where you come from, Julie. Deciding what to get rid of is the difficult task for me. I’m not a hoarder either but have waaay too much stuff. I’m going to tackle my entire wardrobe first. Keep us posted on your success.

      So far so good!! Went through my clothing and I got rid of at least half of what was in it and I must say- it made getting ready for church this morning so much easier 🙂 Good to hear from you! I pray all is well with you!!

      • Good girl Julie. The variety does make it harder to choose. If I do away with half I will still have to much. I’ll take pics of before and after. I’m doing very well. Thanks for asking. I have been home for a week now. I’m well rested. 🙂
