As a professional organizer, I’m highly interested in the science of what makes us surround ourselves with stuff. And what is the limit, I mean, when do you reach that tipping point and consider it hoarding?
I recently watched a few YouTube videos about this compulsion and learned a lot more about Hoarding.
Recently re-watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. This movie really messes with your mind. Have you seen it? He’s born an old man and ages backwards. He loves his family and then a girl. They travel thru time, at a different pace, and it really makes you think about the things that we need in our life!
I challenge you to really think about the things you need. What makes you happy? Time with family and friends? A certain hobby? Helping others? Find ways to incorporate those items into your life. Let go of items that don’t bring you joy.
Not sure how I came across these YouTube videos about tiny houses, but I just can’t stop watching them. I’m fascinated about how people are choosing such a minimalist lifestyle. It seems to open up so many creative possibilities. Whether you build your own or hire it out, there are so many beautiful options.
We were talking the other day at work about the world and world problems. We decided there almost needs to be country that’s over all the countries because it feels like each country just looks out for it’s own. How are we expected to solve world issues and problems?
And just this morning I came across the TED talk — Which country does the most good for the world? As it discussed the many world concerns, and it’s depressing to think about, the video also gave me hope — if we organize and work together, progress can be made.
