Something that was said ~
Talleysue said this in a post I was reading:
"I've found that when I run into my "heirloom" folder or my "keepsakes" box, each time I go through it, I discover something that has lost value for me, and I'm willing (sometimes happy) to toss it. And some other stuff, each time I see it, I am reconfirmed in how important it is to me."
I've found this so true. We have moved three times in the past three years. Each time I got in a rubbish skip and tossed and tossed. Wow, it felt good. I was sure, after the first time, that I had thrown everything that needed to go and had only kept the 'good' stuff.
Well, before the next move I did it again! And I DID find more stuff to throw - things that I had decided were special enough to keep the last time.
And so it continued on the next move!
Now we are hopefully settled for a few years, and I really need to get into my garage and go through things again LOL. I KNOW there are things out there than can be tossed!
We are funny creatures sometimes!
