I cannot believe it is already April! I'm starting to wonder where this year is going, its moving so fast! I don't know about you, but sometimes months seem to go past without me even realising it. It makes me kinda sad, I feel like we should treasure the time that we're given, and when it goes so fast it makes me feel like I'm wasting it. Having said that, March has been a really busy month! I've had a lot going on with schoolwork and such, hanging with friends, family stuff and I've started to put things in motion for some really big and scary dreams. Its been a good month!
Physically, I'm not really one for keeping hold of stuff. If it doesn't really have a use I tend to get rid of it, I'm very much of the opinion that 'stuff' isn't ever really ours to own. Its just matter. We hold onto it for a time and then we let it go. I could count on one hand the items that I own that I would be truly upset to lose - in fact, at a push, I could count these on 4 fingers. Maybe that seems a little harsh, but its true. Yes, I would be sad to lose other stuff, but I wouldn't be devastated. I try not to get too emotionally involved with objects. Why should I? You should love people and use stuff right? Its sad that for a lot of people it seems to be the other way around. My housemates occasionally rib me about this - I don't really mind. I know its a weird way to think about things for a lot of people. Of course I own things, I am in no way a minimalist, but I try to remind myself that the memories are kept in my head - not stored in an object. I think thats one of the reasons I take to many pictures, they preserve the memories without filling my space with loads of objects that I don't really have much of a use for.
“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” - William Morris
This quote kinda sums it all up for me. Its generally how I feel about 'stuff' (Q: How many times have I used that word in this post?! A: 10! anyway...)
I'm starting to realise that this post is basically just me rambling...haha! But hey, thats what this series is for! I've only had this blog a little while (just under a year, eek!) but already its nice to go back and read about what I was up to. I think it'd be really nice to have something at the end of the month that summed it all up. What do you guys think? Do any of you do anything like this? How do you go about it?
