“I was holding onto 60% more stuff than I needed for all those years because of the emotional attachment I had to it. And the emotional attachment was based on the value I’d given each item. There were the books I thought I should read, the clothes I thought I should wear and the projects I thought I should tackle – if I was going to be the person I once thought I wanted to be, or wanted people to believe I was, that is. But I know who I am now, and I like it. So, while I was decluttering, I was able to objectively look at those items and say, “You don’t want to read/wear/do that. It’s ok that you bought it and won’t use it. Let it go.””
