I've been working on Spring cleaning for the past few days, I had several months of running myself rugged over work so it was a much needed change of pace. I took out bags and bags of clothes, shoes that don't fit right and purses I never wore and gave them away to Goodwill. It feels like I still got a long way to go but it sure feels nice to unload. My goal is to clean out one bag of stuff a day, and sometimes I get really into it I would do more. There is something about focusing on what I own rather than how I live that simply don't sit well with me anymore. I feel like the less things I have the simpler and better I can live, so hopefully purging extra clutter is going to help me live more purposefully!
A few weeks ago I found a super nice dog bed for very cheap, the quality was amazing so I got it for my doggies, dog beds are actually something that's in constant demand at my house, they just wear out after a year or so and I usually keep one or two beds in almost every room of my house to keep my pups comfortable. But as soon as I walked out of the shop I saw this homeless guy with his dog ready to spend the night outside in the cold. He had a large black plastic bag filled with either blanket or clothing and that became the makeshift bed for the pup while he just sat on concrete himself. The pup had a leash on and actually looked well cared for. I just couldn't watch it so I ripped off the tag and gave the brand new bed to that little dog. The doggie jumped in immediately, it was a really cold night and hopefully having a real bed helped him to keep warm.
