- The amount of stuff I own
- The number of channels available on TV
- The volume of updates on Facebook and tweets on Twitter
- How quickly some people speak
- Just too much input!
I think that's it... I want to focus on what I already have and decide on what I enjoy, use and love in my life, and get rid of the rest. On my recent trip up to London, I visited the Dr. Martens store to try on some Triumph 1914 boots. Don't get me wrong, they are lovely but I already have a pair of long boots which are probably more versatile, so why on earth was I looking? I gave my Docs away some years ago, as I felt that a grown up woman shouldn't wear them and that it was time to move onto more sophisticated footwear. I rarely regret giving away my possessions, but I admit I miss them and I think I'll always be the kinda girl that wears them. Increasingly I'm in a weird situation of wanting material items, but also not wanting them and it's a bit confusing!
So, my plan is to sort through what I do have, give away or sell the unwanted/excess and limit my spending to essential purchases only for now. I'm a wannabe minimalist and have been spending too much time reading about it and not enough doing! More posts on the subject to follow :)
