#amazing #sky at dawn at about 5:30 am this morning. Noo and I did a #Camberwell #market stall (they have over 300 stalls its like traditional garage sale on steriods) #decluttering #farewelling old #favourites and sending them off to new homes to be loved and enjoyed. Some people bought some things that looked truely gorgeous on them. The process has been hard work but satisfying. Needless to say Noo had a great day being loved and adored by everyone and it was a good exercise for me too. I just don’t need that much stuff and there’s things I’ve been holding onto for years that I’ve outgrow that it was time to let go of. I definitely sold 50 % of the stuff and will give most of the remaining things away. #simplify #konmarie #declutter #wabisabi #philosophy making more time and space for things that bring me joy. We met so many interesting characters on the journey too and the amazing Linda Gardiner stylist bought my rug ☺️ Life is all stories and adventures in the end and I’m happy to collect more of those. I felt like my stall was fairly huge but the girl next to me had a stall twice the size and she must have been only early 20s. Modern life is a trickster and a thief with its mandate for #unconscious #consumerism. #lettinggo #findinghygge (buying things we don’t need to impress people we don’t like 😅) Travelling more has been the best because when I’m travelling I don’t really care what I wear and could live in about 5 things for days, there’s no one to impress and I’m more engaged with enjoying the experience than anything else. Life in captivity can be different and the corporate clothes definitely took up a chunk of my stall. I don’t really identify so much with my external appearance these days but it can be a form of protective armoury in an unpredictable world. And there is joy in expressing creativity but sometimes not always without a dark side if it becomes too yin without enough yang practicality to balance it all out.
