Is there some weird universal law I haven’t heard about?!
When I started to de-clutter my belongings and ended up with a lot less, I seemed to, conversely, have a lot more.
And I don’t even mean the intangible things like time and space (more of that next week) – I mean actual physical items.
This is, of course, because now I have only those items I truly love and therefore I use them a lot more.
Which means I have things in abundance.
- I used to keep things ‘for best’ and I certainly don’t do that now. Today is best.
- I actually use things – you know, use them until they are gone and only then purchase something new – rather than chasing after the new, shiny things.
- I no longer have things that don’t work for me (foundation that made my skin look muddy, hair spray that made my hair crispy, moisturiser that broke my skin out – why, why keep those things?!!)
For example, now when I reach for my make-up, I may only have one of something, but it works for me. I don’t have to hunt through the wrong shades or wrong consistencies to find something that works. Everything works.
I’ve decided to create my own law – Lol’s Law, if you will:
- Fewer things = more usage
- More things = less usage
Have a great week 😊
