Fresh Beginnings & Letting Go

Greetings! Happy belated Thanksgiving and happy December!

Feeling in the mood for a Stream of Consciousness today.

Just got back from spending time with family after not visiting them for this past year. It was a joyous occasion. It felt so good. I’m grateful to have seen them in person.

Instead of taking the bus like I normally do, I decided to avoid the station, a hotspot for the virus. My brother and dad picked me up to head back to my home town. My dad, ever the story teller, shared a few tales along the way home: How the cat found happiness, the one-eyed woman, Roses on Mother’s day … He also cracked open philosophical questions that had me thinking about what’s important.

I helped my parents de-clutter their home to help them prepare for retirement. Channeling my inner “Marie Kondo”, I used her Konmari method to clean out my parent’s home. Sorting through years of memories, donating books & clothes, throwing away broken items was a cathartic experience. My mom and siblings were happy, and Dad …adapted to the new Feng Shui of his home. 😉

I also loved organizing my mother’s beauty products with the lovely drawer from Sorbus Beauty for my mom’s present. That’s typically been my trademark. Organizing my mom’s little messes.

We celebrated my mom’s and sister’s birthday with delicious cake from Mozart Cafe Bakery. My sister showed me her chickens that she has been raising with her boyfriend. My brothers chatted to me about their latest investments. Mom enjoyed giving all of us a new hair-do. We took some family photos in a beautiful park.

A joyous reunion indeed.

  3. Most of the things you mention happens to be supprisingly appropriate and that makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. This particular article really did switch the light on for me as far as this topic goes. Nevertheless at this time there is just one issue I am not really too cozy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the point, let me observe what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Nicely done.
