I wish I had more time to post longer posts these days but we are incredibly busy getting ready for the BODIE and FU pop-up store at the Vipp flagship store in Copenhagen and finalising our debut print collection. So rather than getting completely stressed out, I’ve decided to “let go” and do short blog posts until time is on my side again.
One thing I really enjoyed reading last weekend and which I think you will enjoy too, was “How Mastering the Art of Letting Go will Change your life” by Leo Babauta. Babauta says that we keep things (clutter) in our home for various reasons.
They make us feel secure and safe, they give us comfort, memories and hopes for the future and I can see that. Most of the things in my home are there for a reason and I suspect in yours too…and often there is an emotion/souvenir attached to it.
I wrote here how I was starting to let go of the idea of becoming a mother again but this weekend I found myself, storing a pregnancy book aside while putting all my decoration magazines & novels in bags for the charity shop…and I can see now how much emotion and hope are attached to this book so it is off to the charity shop too.
At the end of the day, it is just clutter. I don’t need a book that I’m not going to open for a while and if I ever become pregnant again, I will probably download the bloody book or buy it.
So if you’re in the same frame of mind than me at the moment, have a look around and think about all the emotions attached to the things you keep.
