Lesson from the Trashcan
— Hilda Lawrence, author
I have a difficult time getting rid of certain things. Magazines. Papers. Birthday cards. Photos? Forget it. Drafts of articles and chapters? Doesn't matter how many times I've rewritten something--or even if said article or book is published--I keep everything from the first lousy draft to the polished finished work.
I have no problem throwing out leftovers--I don't like leftovers. If I see food once, I don't want to see it again. No problem tossing junk mail. Or worn out clothes. Or other people's hand-me-downs, especially when I know they handed it down to me rather than throw it away.
So what does this say about me? Not too attached to food I've eaten once--or other people's stuff.
What does what you toss say about you?
