yesterday i took most of the stuff that i am taking with me to oz over to my mums. all the material things that i have collected over the past eight years are to fit into six suitcases. as well i believe i have done with purging there is still more to be done because i do not actually think it will fit in just those suitcases. it is time to get brutal and break free of material possessions. something like Os baby clothes and such i cannot bare to part with, they are a reminder i need to keep as he is getting so big and looks less and less like my little baby.
i think one of the essential keys to simplicity is minimizing material possessions. and that is a huge part of this journey that i am on so i will keep that in mind when i repack my suitcases for the tenth time.
Childhood is the world of miracle and wonder; as if creation rose, bathed in the light, out of the darkness, utterly new and fresh and astonishing. The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us.
