March Fourth

I feel bad, because I really tried to post this on Thursday…

But the message can still be useful. I loved this message. Whatever we may be going through in life, we have the strength to overcome any obstacle life throws at us. All we got to do is trust the universe’s plans for us. Whatever struggle we go, or have gone through, it is helping us shape us into the person we are destined to become. Even if whatever struggles we have gone through, it has helped shape us and helped us figure out what we want in life.

We must learn that in order to live our lives, the only we can is by moving forward. Life isn’t meant to be lived going backwards, but instead we must continue to march forth.

Day 63

I know I have told this story before, but I have many new followers since I have told this story. I used to live with my mom, before I moved in with my boyfriend and his family. I didn’t want to bring all of my possessions with me to his house. He already had a lot of people, and things in his house. I left the less important things in my room, with the intention of going back there to grab the rest of my stuff. What made it challenging was, it was a long bus ride in between our places. I never felt comfortable having to carry like four bags, and having it take up extra space on the bus.

And at one point my sister lived with my mom, too. So she had her things there, too. My mom was going to use that room for her friend to stay there for a bit. My sister’s boyfriend drove us to my mom’s house, so we can grab our things. Although because they didn’t really plan a lot of time to go through and sort through everything. We did it the lazy way, and just threw everything into a container, and we would just decide to organize it later. So, that is what we did.

And I got settled into a new place last year with my boyfriend, and his friend, so I was finally ready to deal with my stuff. I am tired of having a lot of things in my life. I thought I had sorted through everything, but when my sister’s boyfriend was cleaning out the basement, he had discovered that I had another container of my things. I sorted through the last container of my things from my old room. I feel quite happy about myself.

It is a freeing experience to part with things that you no longer use anymore. I love knowing that there is someone else out there, who is going to use this way more than me.

Today, I will think twice about adding more possessions into my life, and if these items really add value to my life. Sometimes it’s best to just part ways with it, and give it to someone else. It truly is an liberating feeling of owning less. When you have less items in your life, there is less to worry about. When you have less to worry about, you can truly work on the things that add value and happiness in your life.

This is the post where we discuss what is on our To Be Read List, and why we want to read these books. I have over 1,300 books on my To Be Read List. I have so much reading to do.

This week I would love to talk about P.S. I Love You. It’s about this young couple, who are in their 30s, plan on living with the rest of their lives together. Until her love of her life, Gerry is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Knowing that he is about to die, he decides to write Holly letters so she has something to remember him by. Shortly after he passes away, Holly is upset, and refuses to move on without Gerry. She must find a way to accept his loss, and sort of live out her life.

I watched the movie awhile ago with my mom, and I loved it a lot. I am really looking forward to reading this book.
