We find some virtue in maintaining things, stuff. Sometimes more than we value maintaining relationships with real, live people.
Do you ever wonder just whether or not the amount of time, effort and money spent on the maintenance of some such or other actually justifies what it is you are maintaining? This is a question I have been asking a lot lately.
Random objects in my home, whether useful or not, used or not, is this thing really worth my time to maintain it? Now sometimes the answer is a resounding YES! thinking of my coffee machine for instance. My only morning motivation, don't mess with it. But, on the other hand, a chachka that I dutifully dust each week? Maybe but maybe not. Time to think about the chachka or whatever it may be in your world that demands your time, life force or mental energy that maybe you would actually feel freed or released without.
If you are having a hard time trying to decide, try evaluating it this way - if I wasn't taking care of this object right now how would I rather be spending my time? If the thing doesn't warrant the sacrifice, say au revoir!
