Clearing Out

I adore the Wishcasting Wednesday prompts posed by Jamie Ridler. She has a way of getting me to think in a way that cuts right to the heart of things. This week she asks, "What do you wish to clear?"

Short answer: so much.

I'm feeling cramped. Overwhelmed by too much stuff and too long of a to do list. If you read my Wide Open Spaces post on Monday, you already know I'm craving room to grow, stretch, and move freely.

Maybe the season has something to do with it. Now that we're in Autumn, I may be preparing the Hutchins cave for winter. And the thought of being crowded in the cave all winter makes Mama Bear grumbly.

So here are some of the things I wish to clear:

  • Unloved toys

  • Unnecessary paperwork

  • Unused kitchen tools

  • My email inbox (both of them)

  • Excess furniture

  • My teenager's too-small clothes and my husband's old clothes (I've recently done this for myself and the toddler)

  • My old computer (which is still tucked away 6 years later because I need to remove pictures from it- a sloooooooow process)

  • Some of the knick-knacks (because we have too many)

  • Negative energy

This is a big list and it will take some time, but these are the things I wish to clear.

How about you? What do you wish to clear?



  1. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also!

  2. I relate! When I wasn't working, I'd started the process of creating a clearing, but now that I'm back at work...and not at home during the week...that's harder than ever to get going. *sigh*

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too!

  3. Thank you, Jen! Yes, it's much harder when you go to work all day. I always used to find myself at work thinking about all the things I'd get done at home, but by the time I got home and made dinner, all I wanted to do was collapse on the couch.
