I’m going though another of those periods that I like to refer to as the “white phase.” No, I’m not only eating white foods or wearing white clothing (please, that would last two seconds before I had food or debris stains everywhere). This is more of an “I-really-need-to-get-rid-of-all-my-old-stuff-and-start-over” kind of thought process.
I’ve done this before, of course. I just didn’t think that this would be hitting me again so quickly. Maybe it’s a procrastination tool? I have projects I should be working on, and by focusing on de-cluttering my space, I’m not focusing on the projects. At the same time, when my space is cluttered, my brain feels cluttered, and I’m less likely to focus anyway. Vicious circle.
Whatever the reasoning, the urge to unburden and start again is pretty strong. Do you go through these phases? Do you give in to urge to list all your worldly belongings on Craig’s List and wander the world with a backpack (and reservations at a 5 star hotel)? Do you remove everything from every surface in your home and place it all in a box?
