Purging

Over the last few weeks I have begun the process of purging from my life.  No need to call in the professionals.  I'm not referring to an eating disorder here.  I'm referring to a life clutter disorder.  I'm totally not a hoarder by any stretch of the imagination, but I do tend to accumulate things I like.  And I like a lot of things.  The problem is that I don't need a lot of those things.  And a lot of those things rarerly get touched and appreciated once acquired.  So it's time to let them go.

What kinds of things am I letting go of?  Subscriptions to magazines and other services that I'm just not using to its full value.  For instance, I love magazines.  I love looking at the pictures.  I love reading the articles.  I just love good magazines.  I probably had about 6 magazine subscriptions going. To be fair a couple of those were given to me for free. *Thanks Starwood Preferred Guest Program*  But I didn't keep up with them, and now there are 3 - 3 ft tall stacks of magazines sitting next to my bed waiting to be read.  No, I'm not kidding.  So bye-bye subscriptions.  I've also put a sabbatical on my Netflix subscription because I most definitely have not been watching any movies from them in the last few months - or like 6.  There are neatly folded stacks and stacks and stacks of clothes that need to be sorted and mostly given away.  That's probably going to be the area where I'm just going to have to get really real about whether certain clothes are ever going to get worn...or worn again.

I'm also letting go of people and "friendships" that no longer are positive forces in my life - and maybe never were positive to begin with.  The kicker with that one is that they probably won't even realize that they've been "let go." I guess they technically haven't been "let go."  More like demoted to acquaintance status.

They say your environment around you is a reflection of what is going on inside of you.  This purge is long overdue.
