Minimalism – A by-product of Gardening?

When you see a plant/tree shedding its leaves in autumn, you can’t help but wonder why didn’t I do this? Why did I not let go of the things that are old, dry and no more of any use? We clutter ourselves with so many material and emotional baggage. We need to let go. We need to understand that after every autumn comes a spring! Every single time we let go of things that are no longer needed, we make room for new and beautiful ones to come into our life. Applies to single facet of our life!

Minimalism is defined in many ways by many people. All I want to say here is let go off the useless stuff. I have been trying to get rid off the stuff I no longer need and with every single thing I pick up, I realize I have attached so many emotions to it. All I wonder is why? Do you as well?

  1. Hardest to get rid of the children’s things. My son is moving on to A”level exams at college now, another era over, old school books out, putting away ‘childish things.’ Happy for him but a bit sad.
