It’s definitely harder now that I’m having to go through things that mean a serious stroll down memory lane. Why do I keep stuff that’s hard to look at? (Hello old love letters – yeesh…!) I really can’t believe I had 296 unused things. It blows my mind. If you have ever been to my place you know I don’t have a lot of stuff – but somehow I do! I think I might need someone to come over to help me tomorrow! I’m getting a little weary at this point. It’s harder every day! If I were to do this again I would do it in reverse…30 things on day one…29 things on day 2…etc. At least it would feel a little easier everyday.
