The decluttering continues … sort of…
Last week we spoke about how I’m releasing 5 things a day. I realise that this can’t go on forever (unless I start counting every little bit of rubbish) because it’s going to come to a time where you’ve released enough.
But then … I looked at my bookshelf, I wouldn’t like to say I’m a hoarder of books, but I find it hard to let them go. Each one has brought me joy, some have brought me wisdom and others have allowed me to escape everyday life as I am drawn into the story being told.
I love them all and so I was thinking, maybe this is something that won’t be decluttered but there are a lot of them and I am finding it hard to say goodbye.
As we go digital there are fewer bookshops available, but to me, there is nothing like holding a book. Flipping the pages, cracking a spine, breathing in the smell of the ink, wouldn’t you agree?
Going digital means fewer ‘real life’ books and it certainly would help with my ‘clutter’ problem. But I do love a ‘real life’ book and the memories that they bring.
I feel sad to think that future grandchildren might not have storybooks, that their books might all be on tablets. My children loved to hear the same story again and again until some books nearly fell apart and rather than replacing them, they were kept because of all the memories attached.
So what’s the point of all of this? There are some things in life that we just can’t let go of because the memory or thought of them makes us feel good. Sometimes taking us back to a time that is precious to us.
For now I think I’ll hold onto my books, but who knows, maybe in the future, some of them will be part of my ‘5 a day’ ……
If like me, you’re finding it hard to declutter certain items, that you logically know you don’t need to keep, but emotionally can’t get rid of, you mind find my ‘Clearing the Past’ meditation helpful.
