Taking stock

I have a confession I have made to myself: My name is Vinny and I am a hoarder… well, I have hoarding tendencies. I find beauty in everything and sometimes hold on to things for far longer than necessary. At times to my detriment. Cluttering my brain, my space, & my life.

My latest Vinspiration has been one of proclamation. ‘I am a Hoarder!’ I shout as I hold something I want to keep but know I may never get to using as my to-do list is an infinity of wondrous tasks.
This proclamation reminds me to take stock in the things I have already stored in an attempt to shine & relate to my current lifestyle (we will not talk about keepsakes from the past #owningpartsofhoarding). I then decide is the item in hand worth the space it will take up in my home or in my memory bank or how can I use it. If it has immediate use HOORAY!!  If not, to the street it goes. You can find some treasures walking the streets of Brooklyn. 😉
Clear mind. Clear space. Open heart. Productive creativity!
