That’s right. I was reminded of a few things this week as we cleaned and made a trip to the dump with 20 bags full of garbage–not counting bags and bags of just stuff to Goodwill. We’ve decided to start anew. So nearly everything we own goes. The kids bought in to the concept too. It’s hard for me to get emotionally detached from stuff accumulated. It’s liberating to de-clutter once the process has begun. For the first time in a looooong time, all three kids played together, happily!
Don’t confuse my path with my destination. Just ‘cuz it’s stormy now doesn’t mean I ain’t headed for sunshine 😀
The cleaning process made me think a lot about life and my purpose. I thought about happiness and the things that truly make me happy. I realized when I focus on others–helping and serving, random acts of kindness–makes me happy. Must make time, everyday, for the things that make me happy. It goes without saying: Knitting definitely brings me joy.
What does make you happy?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
