Iboxes

So we are moving again. I had hoped not to have to face that onerous chore for several years. Yet, it is what it is. We have only lived here for one year and it is amazing to me how much stuff   we have acquired in that short time. I have lost count of the number of bags of clothes and things we have rid ourselves of. But, that is a good thing. I am sure other people can make use of items that clogged my closets and cluttered my life. It is rather freeing to let it all go. Why do we hang on to stuff for so long? Why do we buy so much in the first place? Our consumer life styles clog the landfill and create chaos for us and a nightmare for future generations. We hoard and we hoard – to what purpose? I have been trying to simplify my life for many years now. Not least of all due to the frequent moves. I should be grateful, but I have to admit that this gypsy lifestyle is growing old – fast! And the pile of boxes and totes make me feel like I am living in a warehouse. I long for the day I can finally put down roots and never have to face another move. Alas, I fear that day will not come until I go on my final journey. Still, I thank God for the many blessings of abundance, even overflowing closets of stuff to share.
