One of my most prized possessions are my magazines. Love my magazines. Maybe it is because they take me to places I may never be able to visit, go into homes that portray places I would have liked to live in, be an inhabitant of beautiful and dreamy gardens, or just plain absorb what people I think highly of are thinking.
There’s so much to magazines, books and any other form of information that allow us to acquire knowledge that sometimes there would be no other ways for us to obtain.
But…I am simplifying again. Getting ready again…to move. Hopefully my house is going to sell pretty soon and I need to be ready. I have been saying goodbye for the last two years. Talking about a long…long farewell. I had to buy a new Christmas tree last holiday season, because I had already donated tree and trimmings to the Salvation Army. But…I have hope that next Christmas will be celebrated in Florida, with lights on Palm trees.
I have to remind myself that the law of plenty is always working. I have to let go of things I don’t need or use, to make room for new blessings that are waiting for me to make space for them to come into my life. Law of reciprocity. What you give to others, you are already giving to yourself.
So it was today…8th May, 2011…a day to be in my garage making decisions about what goes out first.
Your Happy Contessa
