Positively Speaking: Patricia's Perspective

from video
The Meaning Behind Our Things

I recently had to downsize due to a move. During this process I was faced with looking at what I really love and has special meaning to me and at the same time, seeing what I don’t need or use. It’s a tough process but a healing one.

I didn’t realize how attached I became to things I had, even when I wasn’t using them. As I went through everything, I made the decision to offer things I really liked but didn’t use anymore to friends whom I knew would enjoy them and give them a new home.

I kept what I absolutely loved and what I use on a regular basis as well as those precious things with great memories. If it was beautiful but had a negative memory, I passed it on. It felt so freeing to let go of so much and keep what I could now see prominently (because it wasn’t in a cluttered space) and appreciate it.

I also found old family pictures in storage, put them in frames, and made a wall of them that I look at daily. The photos speak to my family roots, heritage, and values.

What we surround ourselves with speaks to our values. That includes what we have, see, appreciate and honor in our homes. I think keeping the things that have meaning to us in our home, brings us home in our hearts.
