10 days since my last post…goodness it feels like ages. I consider this blog my therapeutic outlet but the energy I normally put into writing I have recently put into baking. Thank goodness for low fat ingredients or my friends and family would definitely be obese.
So I was looking through my laptop and I realized how many pictures I have, and after a brief and unemotional trip down memory lane I caught myself deleting them. I’ll have you know that I tend to hoard the most random things; shoes, clothes, makeup and pictures. No, I don’t just like to collect these things I literally can’t get myself to throw them away, emotionally or physically. I hope you understand my level of shock when my fingers went delete key happy earlier on all these memories of mine.
Just like they do on the show (which by the way gives me extreme anxiety yet I can’t stop watching) I sorted myself through every picture…”Do I need this?” “What is it that is making me keep this picture?” “What memory is attached that I don’t want to let go of?” Gah, I sound crazy but I hope you get my point and how big of a milestone this was for me. Not long after this cleaning spree my albums and photos were nice and organized.Sigh of relief.
I’m not sure if anyone else does this or feels this way, but when I have an organized closet I automatically feel like my life is more organized. I don’t know whether it is the symbolism or the actual fact that everything is in it’s spot that puts me at ease. Surprisingly and refreshingly it felt good to let some of those pictures go.
pictures = memories and feelings attached to them
Granted those memories will never leave me nor will the lessons learned from them…but dang did it feel good to let go. Pats self on back. Have a great week everyone!
