In Loner in the Garret, I wrote about the power of "yes" and the power of "no," the times when we need to say one and the times when we need to say the other. Last year was a time when I said "no" a lot, as I needed to. Recently, "yes" has been more prevalent.
constant is the challenge of managing that shift, balancing the old and
new. Finding room for what is added, knowing what and when to subtract. I
talked with a friend today about decluttering, and she mentioned how it
is not just about physical possessions, our material "stuff." It
affects every area of our lives: what to keep, and what to let go of.
Where to spend time and energy, not just money and space.
The changes are exhilarating. Making room for them is always a challenge.
