So the fascination of it all has been to travel, NO MATTER HOW I WAS GOING TO DO IT, IT WAS GOING TO BE DONE!!!! Like I said, I was already getting prepared. I was getting sickened in the past few years by all my stuff at my house. I started getting rid of things I didn't need. I'm not a hoarder, but I did hold onto things that I was never going to use, even though I told myself at the time that I could use it for something later. I had a yard sale, I was giving things to friends. I went through my shoes. I am down to 10 pairs. My goal is 5! Haha. I did get rid of 3 large-sized trash bags full of shoes! I'm not kidding! Now I didn't buy most of the shoes, I have always lived frugally and thrifty. Most of my shoes were given to me, and I don't like to say no. Ok, I could go on and on about shoes (I'll make a separate blog about that) but I'll get back to the point. I was getting rid of STUFF! And it felt good. And every time I do eliminate crap, I feel better! Most of my friends are probably annoyed by how much I talk about me minimizing my life and probably don't want me to tell them how much they need to watch that awesome documentary on Netflix called the minimalist. (minimizing. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt3810760/)
Here I am getting rid of things to finally get to my goal of pursuing my happiness and finally get to have my fascinations turned into realities. Cheers to all!
