RETURNED! - Reveling in free space versus owning things
Last month I had purchased 2 crossbody bags with full intention of keeping both, but after starting to see the empty space in my closet, I decided I didn't need both and returned the gold one.
Don't get me wrong, I love the bag and it was a tough decision. I hummed and haah-ed over it, but ultimately, empty space won.
Seeing more and more free space has been a great incentive and reminder of what I'm striving for - a minimalist lifestyle. Being more mindful of what I'm bringing in actually brings me more pleasure than the quantity. While I feel a little sad about the return, I feel liberated that it's not another item 'bogging' me down, so to speak.
