To select well
“To select well among old things is almost equal to inventing new ones.”
— Nicolas Charles Trublet
On the day after Christmas, many of us are sifting through our old belongings to make room for the new gifts we received the day before. But some of us have a hard time parting with things, even if we no longer need them. Learning to practice discernment about what to keep or discard can help us make use of what we already own, eliminating the overwhelmed confusion of finding and choosing among too many possessions. Today, I challenge myself (and you) to create space for new things by choosing at least five items to donate or throw away, and to start using, TODAY, at least one or two articles that you’ve been saving for someday.
