There are so many directions to go with meditation and mindfulness. And yet, each day that I sit down to write, the words are right there waiting for me. I’m happy for that, as I’m working from a list hastily outlined with one or two words by each day of the month. I mean, what the heck am I going to write when I get to Day 29 and “the unreality of reality?” I have no idea!
This week is about stuff or, as it’s more popularly known, clutter. There are different types of clutter, and being mindful can help you (and me) work through your relationship to clutter as well as help you move on once you let go of clutter this time around. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve been around and around with clutter; we go waaaaaaay back.
This could get heavy duty… Where are you with stuff in your house?
- So many clothes you don’t know where to put them all? Check.
- Basement in disarray? Check
- Cats ruling the house leaving no room for people? Practically, yes.
- A never-ending list of projects that never seems to get done, therefore never gets started? Definitely.
Let’s start off the new week with something funny. I’ve seen this “Stuff” routine by George Carlin over and over again. It makes me laugh because it’s so utterly true – and especially so as I anticipate packing for two weeks in Peru. What stuff should I take? Should I get new stuff to accompany me?
Observe how you enjoy this. Have you heard it before? Do you think he’s got a good point about stuff? Were you annoyed that I even suggested watching this instead of suggesting meditating or more breathing? Reflect. Observe. Then change your perspective.
