I feel like I have to read every article, in every magazine before I can recycle it. I’m years behind because of that belief. Literally, I have Better Homes and Gardens magazines from last year; and Wired magazines 2013.
Why do I feel that way? Because I know how much work I put into my blog entries and feel each journalist/writer deserves my attention by reading what they wrote. I realize they have no way of knowing whether I read it or not but I do believe in karma.
In addition, I suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out). What if I miss that one sentence that could be life changing?! Then I realize that the universe has a way of bringing that tidbit to me.
On the upside, I do at least recycle them, and don’t keep them around forever. Downside, I may or may not have a small stack of pages that have been torn out. I’ll leave that for a discussion another time. 😉
