Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡
Happy Saturday! I had a fabulous week. I’m hoping you did too.♡
As I look back on my week,…. Much of my time was spent emptying out, sorting through, stumbling upon, keeping, throwing out, on my knees praying for forgiveness acquiring so much…. and then offering up my “stuff”. I felt like an excavator/archaeologist. In case you haven’t noticed. I am in a MAJOR transition with this long time relationship with Frenemy. (Friend/enemy) aka…my “stuff”.
I don’t know about you, but I have a difficult time getting “rid” of things. For me, there’s an enormous amount of emotional energy tied into the process. It can be a little overwhelming in the beginning. I hear so many voices, as what to let go of, and what to hold on to.
Early in the week, there was an Itsy Bitsy post about the mysterious journey of the roads we take in life.
Tuesday, I shared about going glamping. Which I explained was a kind of glam camping. And, since I have a strong need to experience the beauty in nature, this also sounded appealing to me.
On Wednesday, we really went foreign as we traveled into the colorful, expressive, and highly emotional country of Argentina.♡
And, on Friday there was the much dreaded closet, that I needed to clean out. Once, that door was opened… let’s just say, I now know what a safari feels like. without a map. (Sorry, I’m pretty sure you won’t ever get to “see” a messy “Marcia’s Cottage”)
However, I do have some wonderful news. …
Because of my
OCD determined personality. I am excited to say that I’ve made excellent closet progress.
After clearing away things, I was able to organize a little built in table that is actually inside the closet. This will make a fun CrEaTiVe work space.
I discovered many things in the
huge pile of stuff closet. Some things I’d forgotten I even had. And, even though I’m not thrilled of this reminder… Thank goodness for friends who will get to be the recipients.♡
I was relieved to say good-bye f-o-r-e-v-e-r to things that I no longer need. I’m sure that they will find a new loving home to nest in. What I think I most reflected on, was that the journey I traveled was an authentic one . I traveled to a deeper sense of myself. I had an epiphany this week. I sort of experienced my own campfire. The campfire of the heart. A deeper sense of what I really need in my life to be happy was rekindled.
I am seeing the beauty of the stars. –♡
Have a lovely Saturday sweet friend. ♡
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
