I’m a sucker for cooking equipment. I habitually buy more than I use. By doing that, I surround myself with more and more stuff. I increase clutter.
Clutter is the bad stuff that stops me from getting to the good stuff.
It’s the pressure cooker I never use or the imported Mexican tortilla press I use once a year. By merely existing, by sitting there, on the kitchen shelf, they beg me to use them. They clutter my mind, which is already cluttered by thoughts of unfinished tasks or wishes of having behaved differently in a situation today.
Breathe. That helps clearing the mind. But having all that stuff around me all the time makes the clutter creep back into my mind way too quickly.
I might need to do something about that.
