As I’ve written two weeks ago, I’m going through decluttering at my home again.
I have much fewer easy decisions which everyone has during their first decluttering.
Sometimes it’s hard to get rid of something even when I don’t feel that I would like to use a particular item in the future.
I was stuck with some decisions.
In my bathroom, I had magnesium oil (and more of magnesium powder to prepare the oil), which I bought maybe three years ago and used rarely. I decided that I’ll use it up.
But I didn’t want to keep it any longer. I didn’t feel the need to use it. No joy, no need.
But still, something in my head was telling me that I rather should keep and use it. Maybe because it’s healthy. Maybe because I’ve paid money for it.
And then came the enlightment.
I’ve asked myself a very simple question:
Would you buy it today?
Is having this item at my home aligning with my today’s self?
The answer was no. Now the decision became easy.
I feel lighter not only looking at how many items I have in my bathroom.
I have also more free mind now. I got rid of the obligation to use the oil. And using the oil isn’t my need today. It would be a self-imposed duty.
