“When things aren’t adding up in life, it is time to start subtracting”

September 17, 2012 4 Comments

I came across this quote a few weeks ago and it seemed resonate with me at the moment.

I’ve been thinking for a while it might be time for a clear out – not just of clothes and stuff, but of people.

So I deleted some ‘friends’ on facebook – the ones I had on hide, or haven’t spoken to in forever. I stopped following some people on twitter – The people who just brag and show off. And had a major clean up of my google reader account – it was getting out of control and seriously I just don’t need to know how perfect your home/job/children are. All the people who made me feel a little inadequate, or made me feel that my life just wasn’t good enough.

And you know what, it’s made me feel lighter. It might be just what I needed. Now I just have to takle the clearing out of my clothes and stuff!

    Before I left the UK I had a huge clear out on facebook – especially of people I wouldn't tell face to face that I was moving because pretty frankly we'd never speak in real life anyway. I think I nearly halved the amount of "friends" on there and in honesty it's a lot better. I have twitter and blog clear outs monthly, just helps keep things fresh I think.

      That such a good idea to do it regularly. It was a huge task to do the big sweep that i'm hoping it'll be easier to keep on top of it.

    You're so right on about all of these points. So glad you're feeling lighter. 🙂
