Have you ever sighed a huge ‘URGH’ of frustration when walking into a room, or opening a cupboard, or seeing the documents on your laptop?
This is the ‘URGH’ of “There’s so much crap that I must take care of but I don’t know where to start”; the URGH of “I can’t face simplifying, but I just can’t carry on living like this”.
The URGH of a dirty kitchen.
The URGH of a pile of documents.
The URGH of a chaotic wardrobe.
The URGH of small trinkets all over the place.
This URGH weighs us down, makes us cranky and sensitive, puts us in a bad mood, decreases our concentration, makes us depressed.
Why go through all this for possessions that aren’t necessary? For things that are not vital? For stuff that is of no importance?
Why ruin our days, our lives, for things we don’t even need? Why put ourselves through this discomfort and unhappiness by choice?
When we choose to buy excess things, we choose URGH.
When we choose not to throw away our junk, we choose URGH.
When we decorate our homes with more and more, we choose URGH.
Let’s throw URGH away.
The only weight we should have in our lives is the weight of a wallet full of money not spent on crap.
Let’s choose lightness everywhere else.
