I have cupboards full of papers and binders of my unfinished dreams (research for books I started, research for business ideas, etc.) which are taking up valuable space in my laundry room cabinets in my small condo which only has 3 closets and none are a walk-in closet. The papers have all been purged and I don't want to throw any more of it out. I feel that they identify me. I really need the space in those cabinets for other things because right now there are piles here and there as well as a few boxes that I don't have room to put the things away that are inside them.
I just don't know where these unfinished dreams should go. I wonder if they're bringing me down and are a reminder of how I let my life get to this point of not doing what I expected myself to do with it. Marriage (I'm now a widow) and kids got in the way, I guess.
Do you have any advice for me? Have you been in this spot? What did you do?
