I realized something the other day. An epiphany was had.
I discovered that I could relate how I was feeling or 'stuff going on with me' to 'stuff' in my possession.
And by 'stuff' I mean - furniture - of course!
I have 6 of these chairs in my possession. And I love them.
I've had them for years now.
They lived in my parents shed for a bit, then a friends place, until we finally had the room for them.
Look at that tufting! I even love the color!!
I couldn't wait to have them stationed around the table when our reno was done.
Only to find that they're a little low for the table. You tend to eat with your elbows up around your ears!
So I've kept two at the table and stashed the other 4 in any available corner/spot I could.
Then the epiphany happened. The chairs could be, perhaps, a metaphor for something I've been 'hanging on to' or unwilling to let go of emotionally.
A friendship that - like the chairs - I love and always will. That even though it had run it's course a while ago, I'd been hanging on to somehow.
Just Like The Chairs.
And so... I think it's time to let go.
I am letting go of the chairs...
and saying 'thank you - I'm sorry - goodbye' to the friendship I've been holding onto.
Do you hold onto stuff that you could let go of, that you can relate to your 'stuff'?
Or is it just me?:)
Thanks for listening,
