I have been listening to an Audible book on minimalism. I am currently feeling overwhelmed as I attempt to keep up with all our clothes and dishes. I just want to say FUCK IT to it all and pack it all up and donate. Why am I washing all these things, day in and day out and it just keeps piling up. Today alone, I ironed 5 slacks for my husband. I have 7 more to go. There are over 15 dress shirts in my pile AND a full hamper full of his clothes in my van ready to take to dry cleaning for a little help. It’s probably more than 20 items.
I really desire for silence, less clutter not only in my home but also in my mind. I have been fighting depression for the last 2 days. Truth be told since I started this no drinking journey and started my No Excuse mentality workouts; depression has stayed away.
I HATE consumption! I always knew I did. It’s what makes Thanksgiving (black Friday, Cyber Monday) and Christmas so damn irritating to me which always led to sadness hence depression.
I”m taking deep breaths and trying really really hard to be gentle with myself although for whatever reason, it’s getting increasingly difficult.
Just for today, I will just be thankful I am NOT “consuming” alcohol and therefore bottles and cans all over the house in my many hidden places. Thank GOD for THAT!!!!
