1 year ago.

About one year ago I could say wherever I went along came all my things. These included: things I needed, things I thought I needed and things that brought memories back to me.

I am now in the process of leaving all these things behind in order to bring along with me peace of mind, lightness, and space for everything I do want.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Museum of Modern Art NY.

By slowly shifting into living with less things I came to realize the lack of doubt and questioning I had towards each one of my possesions. In other words, all my stuff was taking up space in my head to really knowing the answer of why I kept all those things with me.

Was I afraid of something? Was there something I didn’t want to let go of? Was I defining myself by these objects? I still don’t have the right answer to these questions but I do know it is possible to narrow down the things I can live with in order to feel more fulfillied and liberated each time.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Museum of Modern Art NY.

Once I started getting rid of the excess I had and began to dettach from sentimental items I started to realize how to gradually bring more space in my mind to achieve what I really wanted and at that point seemed so hard to reach. These possesions were weight that in some way were holding me back from many other things.

Starting by just throwing away things that had no use was the first step, and I could say it was an easy one. The next one was to get rid of the things that had a value and this has not been that easy. It is still an ongoing process.

After draining in minimalism living content I set my mind into letting go of sentimental items that were just part of the past. 

Having always been attached to things makes it difficult to shift into living only with what is useful. Dettaching from most of these things has given me a sense of clarity and stability instead of fog, and unclearness that I wasn’t aware of before.
