Photo Mountain

Posted on Updated on

I have to admit, I have been avoiding this area of sorting like the plague.   As a matter of fact, as I write my stomach is getting tense.  You see I don’t want to sort all my old photographs.  I can’t bare to spend the emotional energy needed to get through all these photos.  It’s not inside me yet.  I am not that strong.

It makes me sad to see how much time has past.  It makes me sad to see those I’ve lost, and what will never be again.  Even when I look at the most precious pictures, I love seeing them, but it’s a very bitter sweet experience.

Thousands, and thousands of photos and many were “bogo” – buy one set get the second set free.  Add in all the school photos, and the sports photos, it’s a mountain of memories

storage- photos only

My answer here is not the best.  I am not going to sort them.  That’s right.  I bought three large blue bins and today my big contribution to de-cluttering is moving these bins to the storage unit.  These bins are heavy and it is quite a task  moving them.  So it is a start, and it will be an accomplishment.

My rationalization here is that when I finish sorting all the other areas of my life, then I will be free to leisurely look through a few photos at a time.

Will I?… I don’t know.  But I know I won’t let this become a roadblock to my journey to living better with less.

Tip: When visiting your storage space never look in any of the boxes.

Inspiration: “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” ~Buddha

One-day one-thing: Store your photos safely, or sort some of them.
