I woke up in a funky mood today. It happens sometimes, and I have a feeling its a sporadic episode of depression, a mental illness that I have unfortunately inherited.
Desperate to shift this mood aside I have tried to go back to doing what I was completely happy (and ecstatic) to do yesterday – reading MMM, etc – but it is proving difficult.
All I want to do is sleep indefinitely, until I no longer feel this way.
Instead of sleeping, I am starting to read “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying: A Simple, Effective Way to Banish Clutter Forever” by Marie Kondo. I’m not very far in, but she is encouraging me to discard everything unused and unneeded in my life and I had a sudden inspiration to do just that and, in the process, see what else I can sell on eBay. Two birds, one stone – my favourite activity.
The last time I thought to throw away anything I didn’t need was two years ago. It will be interesting to see what I have managed to hoard in this time.
Maybe this will help shift the mood as well.
