8f8 - Retracing Joy - Overview
It has become a challenge with presents this year with only food shops being open and our mail services struggling with packages being delievered.
Besides I lack the will to buy anything since I'm always stuck at home not able to show off with new flashy things or deliever them to people I love and watch how they react to them.
That part actually is what I love and miss most.
So I decided to change something this year and for the first time in my life gift myself for Xmas.
And not with anything new. I decided to take a deep and thorough look at all my cupboards, closets, shelves, drawers and whatnot, take out all that has been stuck there for months, years even, wrap it again in those old gifting bags and boxes I kept pilling with thinking mode (maybe one day they will come handy...) and put them under the tree to reopen them when the time comes and remind myself with how many wonderful things I am already surrounded and not just things but also memories that are attached them, those little moments of joy, connection, thoughtfulness each of them carry. To remind myself I already have a lot to be joyful about.
And if that won't do as I'm planning, at least I will end up with clean and dusted closets... That is also something right? XD
