Shed and donate your unused stuff

Shed.

Let go.

Make it a habit.

Watch yourself soar in your freedom.

Freedom from the weight of things you’ll never use.

Letting go can be painful, but it shouldn’t be

CD collection
Compact discs. Long ago taken out of their hard plastic cases and placed in individual sleeves, and the small “album booklet” recycled.

 

CD collection
CDs – photo for context only.

 

All those CDs.

Over 2,000 of them.

Will be gone tomorrow.

Donated.

Reducing.

Lean.

Freedom.

Thank you Apple Music.

And the fact that CDs are going the way of the cassette tape, and vinyl albums – perhaps this is overdue.

Meanwhile, others will go to their deathbed with their CD collection.

Why?

Picture yourself in a one-bedroom facility.

Make more sense now?

Carving Out A Life

Failure to organize is a gift

Inspiring quote
We will not die if our stuff vanishes.

 

Failure is a gift… if we learn from it. And the beautifully redundant lesson is that failure is not fatal (exceptions to everything, but you get the picture).

Toss things. Give things away. Repurpose.

Worst case, we will feel separation anxiety.

Best case, we feel a freedom we haven’t felt in a long, long time.

And we’re talking a freedom that is beyond amazing.

Incomprehensible.

Joyful.

Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning is a phrase people use to clean out junk, get more organized, and prepare for increased activity brought on by warmer weather.

Where does all our junk come from? And why does it seem that the more we donate, recycle or trash, the piles don’t seem to shrink, the shelves still seem full?

If your dwelling were on fire, what would you take out if you had 2 minutes?

Turning 50

jeff noel now on Facebook

jeff noel is now on Facebook.

Like yesterday’s post about joining Twitter a few days ago, last night I joined Facebook.

So?

Exactly.

It means nothing to some and to others, it means I’m embracing the future.

The future isn’t going to wait because we aren’t ready.

It’s coming at us like a freight train.

Whether we seize the day or not, the day still comes and goes.

Before we know it, we could be on our death bed.  Seriously.

I don’t live with the fear of dying.

I live with the fear of not fully living.

Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂

PS.  It’s not even 7:00AM yet, and this is my 5th blog post this morning.  I’m not bragging, nor am I making any excuses, about what I do.  I just do it and if you want to criticise me or cheer for me, the choice is yours

The choice is always ours, isn’t it.  Particularly when it comes to our attitude.

Carpe diem,  jeff noel 🙂
