Tai's cure for feelings of futility

1) Get a wheelbarrow; 2) wheel it into your living room; 3) fill it up with stuff you don't want anymore; 4) wheel the stuff out of your life.

Ah, but the paralyzed decision-making of those of us who don't know what we want.

OMG! I think you just saved my life. I'm headed for Ace Hardware to get a great big wheelbarrow!

I love this! Though perhaps easier said than done, even though we may not want something in our life letting go of it is a different matter! ;-)

Interesting you would post this now. I'm in the process of 'wheelbarrowing' a bunch of stuff out to the garage this weekend. I know the garage isn't the same as getting rid of it, but most of it will ultimately be either trashed, freecycled or donated. Baby steps.

We began this year as The Year of the Shovel. Alas, it's nothing more than a teaspoon at this point.

Coop, you know what they say: A single teaspoon can stir a thousand cups of tea. Or maybe they don't say that, but they should.

Bravo, Sarah! I bet it feels great.

Anon: Letting go is quite exhilarating, I assure you, once you get some momentum.

Smartz, Ace is an excellent place to begin. Make sure you get the right one, because so much depends upon a wheelbarrow....

QS: The compulsion to fill up an empty wheelbarrow can conquer even the most indecisive mind.

I'm so impressed by your thoughtful comments to each person who responded. And envious that you have so many respondents!
