But, in truthfulness, when I went through the process of loosing our home to foreclosure in 2011, I separated myself from a lot of stuff. That separation of "stuff" was out of necessity, anger and sadness. It was a deep sadness over the loss of Bob to Alzheimer's and all the clutter of memories there were, that were now gone for ever.
I am in a much different place now, and the clutter that I need to part with I do so willingly. I just struggle with finding the time and resources to get rid of it.
I feel in my heart that I truly need less "stuff." Bob and "Al" would do better with less "stuff" around. So that is my goal now; to pare down the stuff in my life, so I can focus on what is important, by freeing my mind and my life from both the mental and physical clutter.
