I really love my books. I always say they are my 'friends'
I don't have tons of but most of my books are for reference
& I love to read over & over. I guess I have about 200-300.
I'm not obsessed with collecting or buying books/things.
I buy a few books a year (that I really want) and I buy
1-2 CDs ( music) a year. I use to buy ALOT. I think I was
addicted to the CDs (music) anyway RE: books? I gave & donated
most of the books I had. But as others said: finding the time
to 'get rid of' I want Less of 'things' and more room in
my apartment. And there is a NEW Book called STUFF by
Randy O Frost and I also watch Hoarders on Tv sometimes?
I'm always wondering RE: Hoarding. I am not a hoarder but
I know it is excessive aquisition, difficulty discarding and
inability to organize. I am organized and clean & neat.
But I (think now?) maybe I have difficulty 'discarding'
I asked my husband to "lets get rid of 'this & that'
I have three small lid-covered boxes /with papers ect?
we laugh and seem we can not budge towards? So I read
where we are TIED to our possessions and one person was
collecting 100's of cook books, recipies and magazines
and never cooked much. Well I'm hoping to start very
soon to discard some of my magazines ( which I use them
to cut out things which I used for a craft project?)
but I don't do that craft no more, so figured I could
let them go. My husband is home in a few weeks vacation
and has promise to take Stuff AWay ect? But he already is
teasing me and saying I do not have Stuff!! I'm not sure
and every time I go to get rid of? I walk away and
'never get back to it' worried here:) I love FENG SHUI
too and I can not understand how I ended up like this?
How should I start and maybe in a fun way? I'm not sure.

We could start new threads on yoga and feng shui - both are GREAT fun and are easy to get started in!

Jilly - your run time is like your moving meditation time so I wouldn't interfere with that - I would count all of your time running as meditation too!

Kathy how come you said "you don't know" about yoga? It is the one thing I still CAN do! I do mostly yoga stretches before bed and if I don't do them when I get up, my day is twice as hard!

You would start out slowly, stretching only what you can do easily. You would find that you can do more than you think!

Jilly do you consider your time spent reading to be a habit? That your MIL is enabling you with your habit?

All I know is I'm green with envy! smile

PDM - I think Jilly was saying that her mother in law was "feeding her addiction" rather than helping smile

I think that 'enabled' must have a specific meaning in the USA that I don't know about. This is the second time that I have come across it recently and been totally baffled.

To me 'enabled' means having the opportunity to do something positive ~ eg. a good tutor would 'enable' the student to reach his / her potential, etc.

Is it me? smile

Yeah, PDM, here it's not a good thing as such. Here when you are enabling someone, It's like giving an alcoholic a drink. :-)

I was cracking a joke, by saying my MIL gave me 30 books when i am trying to de-hoard them. So she was 'feeding' my hoarding tendencies, as Lisa commented. ;-)
