RE: A week in the UK to throw out old stuff

in ecoTrain4 months ago

Being free is something i wanted for a long time. Free of things, free of things weighing me down. I spent a lot of time and effort becoming financially free. Now i'm here i spend most of my time looking at stuff to buy because i didnt buy anything for a long time. Im filling a void i think but i have either two switches. Own nothing or own it all. Im currently in a state of owning it all, power tools, records, clothes, 'stuff' for my van. I mainly wanted two things which was an air rifle and a snowboard for a long time. I now own both because they are nice to have. I think at some point ill eventually purge myself of all this 'stuff' that owns me but for now im enjoying having it, especially the power tools. I just would like a man shed and a garden, maybe a house near the sea. Your mothers house looks incredible by the way, looks like a lot of work though.

I feel what you are saying. All or nothing. And I don't think there is anything wrong with having lots of stuff. Life is long and constantly changing! It's just our desire to hang on to it all forever which tends to trap us.

All men must have power tools and yes, you nailed it with my mother's house. It is a lot of work. Too much it would seem for a person of her age. She is looking for a bungalow now.
