It is Thanksgiving long weekend. Much to be thankful for. I am thankful that we started this challenge. It has been hard but freeing. Some of the clutter has been useful, some meaningful and some is just junk. Today we cleared 14 things from our junk drawer… You know the drawer where everything just accumulates? 14 things, none important. All garbage.
On thanksgiving, I am thankful for this challenge. It is helping focus on what matters most. People. The people I care about, the memories and adventures that are to come. Often, things trap failures, unfinished projects and good ideas that never came to fruition. When those reminders go away, there is a chance to remember the good and create a better future. I don’t know what that has to do with the junk drawer, but I am thankful that it all went in the garbage.
