As I remove the unnecessary stuff from my home I have space and room to put things there that give me joy. In past posts I have already shared some things like this before. How I have space to have sunflowers in my room. How I can bring joy into my life with some things that I already had but there wasn’t the space or room to show them , or they got lost in all the cluttered stuff.
As I sort through things I see precious items that have been stored away for safe keeping (so they don’t get damaged etc) but have been forgotten over the years. Time to bring them out and let them shine. Sometimes it is okay for me to buy something new that gives me joy, as is a particular cushion.
One of my joy’s is art history , especially involving women artists. last year I was given some money as a present and noticing that a shop was closing down I went in and much to my delight I saw cushions with Frida Kahlo on them. Sold. One of them now sits on my lazy boy chair.
Did I need a cushion? Yes, as I had no cushions at all but then maybe it was a want as I can always do without cushions. Did it have to be a Frida Kahlo cushion? Probably not, any cushion would have done the same thing. But would any cushion have given me the same joy? Absolutely not. Every day I look at the Frida Kahlo cushion my heart smiles so yes it was a good buy, even better I got it for half price. More joy.
