Seven things

In The Unbearable Lightness of Being, the author turns our ideas of heavy and light around - what is heavy is usually dull, holding us back, weighing us down, and what is light is usually free and uplifting. But here's an idea: the lightest, flimsiest things in our homes might be the ones holding us back, keeping us from the serious heavy stuff of life that's really important: family, community, work. It's funny what sort of silly lighthearted things we hang on to for no good reason:

  1. box of extra large legos - Little One has outgrown these!
  2. toddler shoes
  3. a few pieces of tupperware
  4. a sinkbrush
  5. a mismatched plate
  6. more old papers
  7. wrapping paper
