You often see posts today about how people have too much stuff. But that’s never a problem. “Too much stuff” seems to indicate that there is an ideal amount of stuff. For whom? The backpacker? The family of five? The crafter? The minimalist?
The issue is not the amount of stuff. It is: stuff we are not in alignment with.
Let’s get rid of the pressure of too much stuff or too little stuff and instead start thinking about the perfect amount of stuff that feels in complete alignment with who we are and where we want to be. The amount and the kinds of stuff this inspires will be different for everyone (as anyone who has a child or remembers being a child can attest to with their box of paper and bottle cap treasures).
Be in alignment and the stuff will follow. Maybe it will follow you to the recycle bin or the donation center. Maybe it will follow you into a newly organized closet. Maybe it will lie on the floor in a glorious pile.
Either way it will all bring joy and that is the point, isn’t it? Because you can never have too much of that. :)
