"I've been getting rid of some clutter — anything that doesn't serve a positive purpose in my life — and making room for things that feel happy to me. Because I get to make my life whatever I want it to be. I get to make the room feel however I want it to feel. I get to make the closet as full or as spacious as I want it..." -Jan Denise

I've lost my way. I've been so consumed with this house that it is taking over me. When I was dating my husband, he had nothing but a couch and kitchen table and we never had any stress. We spent out time together, enjoy each other's company. Now we have a house full of furniture and I feel like all of my days are spent cleaning stuff. It's ridiculous. I'm stressed over this..over that.. what has gone wrong?

I need to eliminate the "stuff" from my house. The excess that is consuming my thoughts and my energy. Stupid. It's just stuff..but it's hard to get rid of things when family is near by and they put on the pressure. "Oh, don't get rid of that. You'll regret it. Oh honey, just pack it away. You might want it someday."

Ugh. No. I don't. My parents brought us this china cabinet over to our house. "Oh, honey, don't you want to put your stuff in here? This way you don't have to dust it." NO. I don't want it. I don't like it. I don't need it. Period. So, luckily my sister took it and it's out of our house. Whew. One thing down.

Ok, enough venting. Time to get back to purging. A serious purge.
