It's so haaa-aa-ard, to say goodbye, to yesterday...
These things no longer have a "hold" on me, or at least I'm at the place where I don't need them.
The Liberation List:
1. My Ruth's Chris Steak house waiters folder.
2. The hundreds of cd cases / booklets I thought I'd need. (see www.pandora.com)
3. Bags of extra clothing and shoes. (Platos Closet $67).
4. My Macbook box and packing materials.
5. Nintendo64. + games.
6. 2 Altec Lansing Bookshelf Speakers, Magnavox 5-disc CD changer,
7. Seminary notes, books, videos.
8. Relics from world travels that never really made the "display wall"
9. Plates I told April to hold onto for her own sentimental value.
10. Dwayne-wayne flip-up sunglasses.
11. 1995 version of Sony Dream Machine alarm clock.
12. Old flip flops.
13. Old tshirts from college road trips.
14. An extra "Beijing Starbucks" coffee mug -- who needs 2?
Useless items I still hang onto:
1. My first baby teeth and note from the Tooth Fairy.
2. Sigma Chi glass.
3. Cigar ash tray
4. Old watches that probably I'll never wear.
5. Old street maps of where I have been.
6. Poker chips.
7. BB-gun pistol (looks like a sweet 9mm).
8. XBOX (has pac-man for when Josh and Caleb can play).
9. Movie ticket stubs that I took April to, or Josh and Caleb to.
Last week, we our pastor gave a great sermon on not "letting our possessions possess us" -- and how appropriate that our house should rapidly sell. As we position our lives for greater mobility in the future, it boils down to the trivial, the expendable, and the invaluable.
Trivial -- random junk we all accumulate.
Expendable -- everyday use items we do need.
Invaluable -- things that are worth more than words.
