Linda gave us the prompt of toss for this week’s #SoCS.
There are days when I wish I could just toss all of the junk that lines the walls in my dining room, living room garage, backroom and the husband’s bedroom out.
Unfortunately, when you live with a hoarder, you cannot just toss things out. It is a struggle and I have begged for years for him to seek some help to so we can understand the cause of his hoarding. I will say that over the last two years, he has gotten much better at not just buying crap just to buy crap.
So, I simply just toss my own crap out. Every six months I go through a purge. If it hasn’t been worn or used in the last six months to a year – it gets TOSSED!!
I also continue to toss all those old behaviors , attitudes, and resentments out of my head and the way I speak and, act and react in situations that used to baffle me. By the way all of those items mentioned above are items that I have tended to hoard over the years, even when I thought I wasn’t. I am blessed to have 6 months of SOBRIETY as of 7/1/20 and I am so proud to have them.
So, I will keep on tossing what I don’t need and keep only what will benefit me in my road of recovery and being spiritually fit!!
That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!
