This morning I came across Bindu Wiles's "Shed Project" - a challenge to get rid of all the extra stuff in your life... possessions, weight, unhealthy relationships, emotional baggage, etc... that do not serve you. Interesting that I come across this idea at this moment...In one week I am leaving Vancouver for an extended holiday of yoga, surfing, beach, sun and travel. I feel like in some ways I have quit my life here. When I come back I will get a chance to start fresh. Without all the stuff.
My apartment is empty and I am currently taking up some space in Troy's apartment... My desk at work is empty and I will soon be using a random computer for my last couple of days at CIBC... My agenda pages, ink usually jumping from them, are now white, as my plans for the next while are unknown.
I love the idea of getting rid of stuff... whether it be to make room for something new, or just to carry less. It is liberating, and cathartic, and terrifying all at once.
What can you shed from your life?
