Downsizing – Stress or Excitement?
My husband Cliff and myself have taken a monumental decision to downsize.
We want to enjoy the everyday experiences of being free to spend more time with family and friends, not to spend so much time maintaining a large house and having free time to enjoy our hobbies and travel more.
To this aim there needs to be stages. The first one is to start looking at all our material goods stored in the house, looking at why we store items in the house, loft and shed waiting for them to be of use one day and reducing them to a more manageable number. Choosing what we keep will be based on three things
Do we love them, do we need them or do they give us good emotions(memories)?
So you may see items for sale, or items to be given away or donated to charities and activity groups.
Hopefully our family and friends will be on board with us and be part of our journey.
2016 will be a year of excitement and enjoyment. What will yours be ?
