Throw out moldy newspapers and create a future
Did you know you need good air circulation to keep items from growing mold?
I went in the basement today and it smelled musty. The dank smell of mold and decay.
My treasures were stored in the basement.
I found a Japanese Newspaper, from September 22, 1990, the day of my wedding. My friend mailed us the newspaper from Japan. It was fun to have something dated from our wedding day. My husband and I met in Japan.
The newspaper is damp. It smells of mold. I will throw it away.
The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free
I can spend the rest of my life rearranging boxes in the basement,storing moldy papers. Or I can clean out my basement and free my time to create a new life.
The garbage truck will come again to our street next Tuesday morning. I have five days to put everything in the basement in black garbage bags.
Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.
– Daphne Rose Kingma
I will let go.
