image Our stuff!

Some years ago I moved into a brand new condo building.  When I visited my neighbors, I noticed that several had purchased brand new furniture and artifacts that were stylish and trendy, whereas I dragged somewhat worn possessions that I had for years.  Recently I have moved again and while sitting and enjoying the first coffee of the day this morning, I surveyed what I saw in my new living room.

Every item has a story – a reminder of where I have been,  my connection with people and places, the memories each one brings.  I’m glad I carry all these things from place to place – letting some go of necessity, of course, but keeping enough to be links to the past that I appreciate with gratitude as I live in the present.  Try it yourself in your own space!
