“Selling vs. Donatingâ€¦..
When we acquire an item, there was an obvious need for us to do so, real or imagined. It may have served its purpose where we feel we â€œgot our monies worthâ€. Then again, some acquisitions are what we needed at that time in our life whether we â€œgot our monies worthâ€, or not. I have found over the years that everything that has come into my life, came in for a reason, sometimes very temporary and all at some cost. Our lives are constantly changing as we grow as individuals. I have always donated my â€œgoodiesâ€. I feel so fabulous knowing that things that are no longer useful to me are the very things that other people actually need. I also take tremendous pride in how I prepare the items I am donating, knowing that my discards will be someoneâ€™s blessings. Itâ€™s part of the circle of life, in-out, in-out.”
There are a couple of points in this post I want to comment on.
A quick update on yesterday’s post: As soon as I finished my self indulgent rant on selling v donating I immediately opened the ebay site and listed the items I had been procrastinating about. As one Facebook reader commentedÂ ~ “Sorry, but that didn’t seem very helpful…..” but it sure helped me to quit whining and just make the effort.
