The only way to sail in stagnant waters was to start to row. I had to jump from place to place to find where I belonged - this is a gem of an insight :)

I have a startup project to promote the trade in 'unused' objects, as I call them.

Objects can be many things, but all are simply tools; the memories and emotions associated with them remain in our minds and not in the objects. Therefore, as soon as an object is no longer used, including art objects, giving others the chance to use them becomes the most beautiful thing we can do, because it is like continuing to give life to a part of us that we have put aside.

My motto is very simple: re-use, be happy.

Moreover, unused objects are in the stage before they become waste. It is utilisation that prevents transformation into waste and harm to the environment.

The thing is, I don't really know what I want. I was assigned one task after another, from my schools to my work. I don't know what I'm passionate about and what my elephant is.

Your product sharing is always inspiring! I cannot believe that I find myself resonate so much about cleaning the house (declutter and let go stuff). Love the reframing technique in the every day life! Let's celebrate the achievement-donating 1,000 items!

Good read as always. For me, it's important to know that even successful people stuck in their life at some points. "The best way out is always through." I like it.

I deal with exactly the same feelings with my newsletter (I’ve been writing for three years), and I even publish less often than you. Kudos for keeping up!
