So much to do….so many loose ends to tie up.
Going back to the “Zen Things”, ‘Do one thing at a time’ is something I’m striving for right now, because I find, in my mind at least, I’m trying to do or sort out 3 or 4 things at any given time, and that is very counter-productive and confusing.
I’ve found out that in this process of minimizing, the deeper into it I go, the more difficult it becomes. Those first layers of ‘stuff’, like the cloths that never did fit right or the shoes I didn’t really like anyway ….that was a piece of cake. Now, not so much. It’s an emotional roller coaster, with all these decisions about what to let go of, then the pain of letting go, followed quickly by a sigh of relief, after I’ve done so. Each item I release allows me to feel a bit more freedom, and a bit more lightness, and that feels good and right. I’m glad to be doing it, but I’ll be REALLY HAPPY when the process is FINISHED and I’m on the road!
On the lighter side….
Tomorrow morning, July 1, I’ll be registering for my first Casita Rally, which is being held in Grapeland, Texas near the end of October. Every time I say that name, the song “Graceland” (Simon and Garfunkle) plays in my head, except I replace the ‘Graceland’ with ‘Grapeland’ and it makes me giggle. 🙂
“I’m going to Grapeland, Grapeland, Memphis, Tennessee. I’m going to Grapeland. I’ve reason to believe, we all will be received at Grapeland.”
Hope I made you smile! 🙂
