I have a plan.
I always have a plan.
Sometimes I ditch my plan.
Sometimes I change my plan.
I'm okay when it happens.
A friend of mine brought up an interesting topic.
Why do we keep things that invoke feelings of guilt?
My response was,
"Sometimes I wish the house would burn down(just let me get a few family pics and my favorite jeans first!).
Then I/we could start over fresh and not worry.
That part(the weeding of stuff) would be out of our hands.
So maybe I/we should grab just the very few things we would want to save from a fire and ditch the rest."
This sharing of ideas led me to go through a few boxes that have been sitting unopened for a couple of years.
I have a huge miscellaneous yarn collection.
I don't want to think about the money in it.
I will never use it.
I need to get rid of it.
And the guilt associated with what I perceive as wasting money because I never used the yarn.
Goodwill here I come!
The back story...
Last Thursday I got some great yarn at Big Lots for $1.50 a skein which normally retails for about $10.
I 'm actually making something with it.
I'm almost finished as a matter of fact.
A scarf, for when it gets cold again.
Get cold again I mean-it always does.
I wish Paul Harvey were here to tell me the rest of the story.
I could plan better if I knew how it ends.
