Mental Margarita for August 13, 2008

May I beg your permission to be extremely lazy this week and send you elsewhere for more thoughts on decluttering and the energy of stuff? I may? Thank you! You're too kind.

Please check out Jody Owen's newsletter (of The Space You're In) at http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs064/1101334936365/archive/1102123376812.html and click on the "Energy of Stuff" link. (You'll have to copy and paste the link into your browser, I couldn't get it to be an active link.) You can also sign up for newsletter there - it's a good one.

Hope you're having a stellar summer!

Hi Karen,
So, I've read a few of your blogs...the decluttering, the releasing. Stuff has energy. Well, I'm glad "stuff" has energy, because I surely do not. A husband, 4 kids, 2 dogs, a cat, some fish, a corporate job of 60+ hour weeks......breeeaathe. So, maybe that's why I have so much stuff, to be surrounded by the energy I do not possess? I'm being silly, of course. But, bottom line, I love my life, surrounding myself with stuff that comforts me, helps me nuture those I love and plain just makes me smile. So, for now, I guess I'll just dust the clutter.

You're actually making my point! If stuff has energy, the question is, does this stuff GIVE me energy or suck my energy dry? In your case, your stuff gives you energy. Your schedule, on the other hand...
