Isn’t synchronicity wonderful when it happens… Just after my last posting on how much colour enhances my life, I received a surprise present from my son. A beautiful cup and saucer in the most stunning hues, this is definitely Not going to be in the declutter box.
I’m sure we have all moved a few times in our lives and swore that next time we won’t collect so much ‘stuff’, as the boxes pile up. The time before my recent move, my Dad ‘helped’ clear out our house. What I didn’t realise was he took so much home with him that was ‘in case you need it for a rainy day, or it might come in useful’. When he passed, I then had to dispose of my belongings again and all of his clutter stored for many years. (Why do we keep old bits of broken tools, furniture, mystery metal bits? Heaven knows.)
I had what I thought was a decent clear out when I moved but still had a garage full of boxes, as time has gone by I am going through them and being ruthless. As I haven’t many shelves or units yet, what I do bring into the house must have meaning and a special significance, so Sally is right, if it doesn’t resonate good vibes, out it goes.
"Hi I’m Dena. I have worked in the same company for many years in a variety of roles and am now in a dual role of health and safety and assistant to the company secretary.
I have been interested in holistic therapies for many years, and as I am qualified to practise in a few, it would be good to re-engage again with the calm and balance that they bring, and of course to increase my everyday Happyness!
When I saw on Sally’s email asking for Happynesshubbers I thought what a good idea, but knowing me thought that I wouldn’t be able to commit to looking at all the emails for three weeks and finding time to go online and blog as I haven’t done it before. I know it only takes a few moments of the day, as I did dip in and out last time, and enjoyed the ones I looked at. My son is Paul, another Happynesshub Hero, and he asked me about becoming a Happynesshub Hero too – I surprised myself when I said yes! I’m excited to have the possibility of committing to start this exciting journey and make it part of my everyday life."
