Being able to reinvent myself is such a good thing for me. I can start all over fresh with a clean slate. I think a minimalist lifestyle works best for me.
I used to be all about collecting things. I felt like having things gave me purpose. I was so wrong. All that did was weigh me down. For example, at one point I had over 300 pairs of shoes only to wear about 10 or 15 on a regular basis. I had some of them just to have them. Ridiculous.
The less I have the less cluttered my brain can be. The less cluttered my brain the better I can think. The better I think the better I write.
