What I’m taking with me in this new chapter.

As I embark on this new chapter of my life I have to travel light. I don’t have much, but I have already started doing my cleansing. The stuff we collect is amazing and a bit embarrassing! Things and more things we won’t be able to take away at the end anyway!The picking and tossing started slowly late today. It took some effort to face the stuff I have to ditch, the stuff I need and want to take. I cannot take it all and don’t want to. Luckily I owe practically no furniture. The pieces I purchased fifty/fifty years ago can stay behind. I don’t want to carry memories, I want to take only two pieces: my little writing table my ex got me when he was broke and my jewelry box from the same store.

As for books, it breaks my heart to leave them behind. I shall put most away and take five. I already have picked them, that’s been the easiest part.

I have nothing valuable, just like I came into the relationship, I’m leaving, but the second half of my life needs only to be filled with memories and not things that take up space.

I want to leave no mark or trace behind me either. That’s the challenge on such short notice.

    I wish the best of everything for you in your new journey. Just one suggestion, don’t get rid of everything just now if you have the chance to keep in in a friend’s garage… You might want to see some things later on just to measure and celebrate progress. Un abrazo enorme!
