As you can see from my storage room, I have a LOT that fits into Jamie Ridler's Wishcasting Wednesday question of the week: What do you have to share?
Well, I'm sharing a lot... with the people of Goodwill. :) Good things, happy things... things. Things. THINGS.There are things that I don't need anymore, things out of style, things I didn't enjoy doing, things someone else will love.
We haven't had a Goodwill store for very long. Just a couple of years. But I have done several cullings of my things... things that I have gradually released after our move eight years ago from our home of twenty-one years. It was a traumatic move... one none of us wanted to make, but had to nonetheless. A sad leaving for sad reasons. But in the end, a freeing one, a better one that just took time and distance to see.
Getting rid of all the THINGS was another story. I held on to way too much and way too many things just to keep a connection no longer helpful. Emotions that weren't healthy. I wasn't a horder. Yes, I know that picture looks like I am, but moving from a 13 room house to a two bedroom apartment took some finesse, believe me.
This is the last major sharing... well-timed with Jamie's question. The Goodwill trips are all about the odds and ends, the books and craft supplies someone else will love, clothes and the like. What am I sharing? Supplies, fun, the joy that these items brought me when I got them, and love - of craft, of creating and of home. :)
