Less is more...good point. We all seem to start out with less and living in a house or home for a long time we don't realize how the clutter happens and the evolution of accumulation of so much stuff. Can you talk about this some more as far the the emotional understanding of love and attachment to things for example your grandmothers belongings that you put back into the closet and continued to keep it...Thank you so much how to release and let go and grow with change

12:58:41     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Sourcebook : Anonymous Attendee 12:34 PM 

Change, the complex dynamics of change, how to change and grow and learn in the process. Feeling settled at home we do not think feel know or have enough of an idea about how much work is involved in moving. You Explained to Do this while able and healthy enough and can think it through and have the time and energy. Family has the best intentions you have to love them. So much to know and so much to learn about how to learn to go through change of leaving your home and your house. Move big items out, make sure complete one room. good teachings and suggestions....
