One bag of clothes to the laundry room clothing donation bin and more books into the bags for the library!
And I taught a free class in Family History Writing at Q.E.D. Astoria – such a rewarding exercise. We talked about our families and the kind of events that shape us, that define us – and we talked about how best to tell these stories. Next two weeks, same deal. More classes.
So what have I gained since I started tossing and sorting and organizing in an attempt to declutter my life? I finally felt it this afternoon – breathing room. I’ve gained breathing room. I feel lighter. For the first time in a very long time, when I finished doing the laundry, I had enough space in my drawers to put all my clothes away. It’s the same kind of feeling I get when I lose body weight – like losing even a few pounds.
This is fun. I can’t remember the last time a Lent activity was fun.
