If you hold on to the clutter of your past
Their may never be room or space for anything new
Storage parcels paid on for a decade
The past and all it’s hurts and insecurities
Make for an elusive future
Wind, rain, fire and circumstance destroy possessions
Your mind refuses to let be
What others plainly see
Live and Love your present
It’s a gift

After writing this I had much compassion for my daughter who says she has lost so much in her life.
It also bought me back too the times, I traveled cross country with nay more than a suitcase in my greyhound journey. I had a give away party before leaving. Treasured items I knew would not be making the many miles with me.
Just recently I DE-cluttered my home. So many outdated TV’s, monitors, printers, keyboards and mice, clothes that would never fit me again.
I still have treasured mementos, things that will be found when someone else has the obligation to keep or dispose of.
The time when I am no longer present.
Life is the one thing we need to remind ourselves to cherish and treasure.
Everything else reminds us of things better left in the past.
I am not my stuff; we are more than our possessions.
Our memories are within us, not within our things.
Holding on to stuff imprisons us; letting go is freeing.
Interesting reads on the subject
Picture the money you pay for your self-storage unit each month.
I wonder why persons are willing to pay so much to avoid letting go
