Urge to Purge

By , May 19, 2011 11:22 PM

Apparently, it doesn’t take very much for me to feel like a genius.  I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, but it feels pretty good at the moment.

Why the self-satisfaction?  Well, I have an old Dell computer that has been cluttering up my house for the past 5 years.  I wanted to salvage the files on the machine before I took it to be recycled.  You might think this’d be a fairly straightforward undertaking.  Not so much when you have a floppy drive and zip drive, but no cd writer on the old machine.  Oh, yeah, and Windows 98.

Needless to say, I had to get creative and lots of things didn’t work.  Tonight I managed to come up with a combination that did.  Yay!

From a timing standpoint, I’m very happy that I’ll be able to get rid of this computer clutter, along with a 21” CRT monitor and an ancient printer.  I am having the urge to purge.  My closets better watch out too because I’m feeling a little merciless.

People always say that endings are just openings for new beginnings.  That’s true, of course, but they are also often poignant and sad, no matter whether it’s the right ending or not.  And there’s the other aspect of not knowing when the next beginning will arrive.  I had such an ending yesterday and I’m finding myself in that mode of letting go of whatever might keep me from taking flight.

I’m reminding myself that the simple act of letting go can be, in itself, a power move.  As the grief is processed and the sadness abates, the new possibilities have an opportunity to guide me in a new direction.
