Lost and Found

an excerpt from one woman’s experience in unexpected downsizing…

And so we spent the next few days sorting, organizing, purging. I couldn’t believe the things I found that once had been lost: letters from long ago friends, my oldest child’s favorite stuffed bear, a picture of an angel that had hung above my childhood bed. It was cathartic. It began a process of letting go that allowed old baggage…literally and figuratively…to be weeded out from our lives. Soon we found we had changed to match the world around us. We needed less and, better still, wanted less.
