Downsized 18 months ago. Thankfully, we only moved across town and not across the country! The decluttering and packing were massive and exhausting projects that took 4 months but were also liberating and self-affirming. I learned that I am not my stuff and that I need very little to live well. Now, in my new, smaller space, I declutter each spring and fall. The liberation continues!

What you accomplished, Shaunta, was monumental! To move across country with so many people and challenges is a challenge few would undertake. Congratulations for all you’ve accomplished and for your new life 👍

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
