Clearing out the old

I've been clearing out a lot of things that I have kept for a long time in boxes and have not looked at for years. I'm finding a lot of fun things, and getting rid of many things that no longer hold any power over me. It feels great to let these things go, and to find old friends... :-) What is striking me the most is how much of a different person I am now. (and that's awesome!)

I have a box of crafty things that were my mother's on craigslist at moment, so if you or anyone you know is interested... you know what to do...

Another thing that has occurred to me in the past few weeks is that for some reason I have for a while created a belief that wanting more than the basic things in life is selfish, or something to frown upon. Well, I'm here to tell you that is OVER. I shudder at the thought that I may have unintentionally discouraged anyone from wanting whatever they wanted. I have a long list of things that I want to keep in my life, create in my life, and enjoy, and the list just keeps growing... so look out people. :-D

Also, I am finding some useful things in these boxes. I found this old tape recorder of mine (it's not digital, but it works) in one of my boxes, and heck, I should be using this for my acting and recording over the old stuff on it, not keeping it in a box. Yay, for perspective!!!

I wonder if anyone would be interested in this GenuINE 1980's piggy (hippo) bank , complete with lock and keys... LOL! It's so cute, it needs a new good home. The sticker on the bottom says 4/1984 hahaha... So it's an antique - 25 yrs.

I found a recording of my mom talking... it was a nice surprise, I haven't heard her voice in a long time.

Awwww....I want to hear it! I may get emotional though. I haven't been watching my wedding video for that reason. Sounds like you are doing good work.
