I Won!

I rarely win anything so when I learned that I won a free Reiki session from a local yoga studio I was pretty excited.  It was exactly what I needed today! The session was wonderful. I left feeling brighter, lighter, and more relaxed. I also made a new friend who offered the opportunity for future energy exchanges. I save money by not having to pay for a Reiki session and I get to gain confidence by giving her a Reiki session. It’s a bonus win, win!

I didn’t accomplish a whole lot on this half day Wednesday but it’s not over yet. I found out the other day that I won’t be able to move until the 30th….no pressure there…yikes! That’s going to be cutting it closer than I am comfortable with but I am hopeful that I can get everything into the new place and have just enough time to clean the old place. I have been trying to clean as I go so hopefully it isn’t a hot mess of a day. Seventeen more days to go…..

Last night the boy I and I did some serious purging since it was garbage night. I even went through my boxes of memories. I was in a chuck it kind of mood so lots went. Why do I need an 8×10 wedding picture of myself and my ex husband in an engraved frame no less? I tossed it! There are other pictures for future generations if any of them care. I had a picture and old bandana from my aunt’s boyfriend, I also tossed that. I had a huge crush on him when I was seven….forty years is long enough to hold on to that memory. I tossed all of my old Avon bottles from the seventies….nobody wants those anymore. I also tossed cards, letters, and the like.

I am still holding onto my concert programs from the eighties, there aren’t that many and they don’t take up that much space. I am getting rid of old newspaper clippings that I didn’t know I still had. I will be taking them to work to share with the optician first. People must have sent them to me back in the day because I have newspaper clippings from all over.I was a serious Jon fan when I was in high school! I’m still a fan just not as excessive.

I also kept my baby cards from Germany and my first birthday cards. I’m not even sure what this is?It’s in German so I am saving it, for now.

I still have letters and pictures to go through but I enlisted KB’s help to go through those with me. I still have 4-H ribbons and school ribbons and certificates….I think I might hold on to those too. Thankfully I labeled them when I was young enough to remember which ribbon was for which event.

I tried a new wine yesterday. I picked it up because of the label….I took a chance on it because it contained petite sirah. It’s actually pretty tasty plus there was an inspirational quote on the cork.

That has been my week thus far…a little bit of luck….a little letting go….and maybe more than a little stress…..Zia
