In the previous post, I mentioned that Jason and I are moving forward. But for myself, I started to move forward back in the fall. Maybe it wasn't so much of a moving forward action, but it definitely was a "this is no longer where I am and I accept it" action. I cleared out clutter from the previous stage of my life, in order to make room for things in this new stage.
Sounds a bit dramatic, doesn't it.
I purged the basement of pounds and pounds of design magazines, counter top samples, paint chips, and product catalogs.
In life before MS, I used design magazines for my own inspiration and to help clients visualize an idea. I could never have enough samples and paint chips for when people came here to ask me for decorating advice, or for when I was doing in-home visits.
I don't need those things anymore.
Now, in life with MS, I need space for zippers!
And that, is a recipe for lemonade.
