Over the weekend, Mister undertook a project that’s needed tackling for ages. And y’all – I was so proud of him.
For those who don’t know, Mister has a bit of a hoarder problem. I can’t explain it, so I won’t even try. But I will tell you that it sometimes makes life challenging, trying to live with stuff that we don’t need.
Anyhoo – Mister went through the dresser drawers and really pared down his clothes. I was so proud of him! I know it took time and energy, but it also took something more. He had to fight against his ordinary impulses and tendencies. He had to let go, for cry-eye. (That ain’t easy for everyone, folks.) And yet, he did it. He focused on one job and he completed the task.
I know there’s more to do and that Mister alone is responsible for his stuff. But if this weekend’s chore is any indication, I know he can get through the rest of his stuff and feel great about the lack of clutter, and the ease in finding things. Win-win!
Baby steps, y’all. Baby steps.
