Shutting Down

Shutting down is not as easy as it appears. People who typically see you all the time assume you are hiding. You are not hiding. You are very busy getting rid of excess and cleaning all the tracks of you. It’s hard work. You collect and lot of junk and stuff over a lifetime. 

For me it makes the most sense to do my work while the others are sleeping. It is purposeful and intentional. It eliminates unnecessary conversations about why the stuff was saved and why it needs to go. It was very uncomfortable for the first couple of weeks. People tend to adjust when they don’t get answers they begin to ignore the differences and move forward.

Eliminating the unnecessary things thrills everyone once they realize they don’t have to participate or lose any of their things. (This is a do it yourself, for yourself kind of thing.)

What do you need in your wardrobe? If it doesn’t fit, get rid of it. If you have not worn it in 8 months you probably don’t need it. How many clothes does a person really need?

  1. I suspect that if you asked my wife the same questions about my stuff there would be a different answer. She and I have very different styles. She doesn’t like certain places with stuff on them. I don’t care. So we divided the house. I get the basement, she gets the rest of the house!
