After watching the footage of Joplin tornado devastation, I wondered what our family would really need to save in an emergency. Mike and I once moved to Racine, Wi in a small U-haul trailer, moved back to SD in a U-haul truck, and since then can’t think of how we’d move all of our stuff ever again! So, we’ve had a rummage sale almost ever year since becoming homeowners and parents yet perpetually more things I once thought I needed I’ve come to realize I don’t.
Simplify was the theme of this year’s clean out! Would I really need this or go looking for this after a tornado? Oddly enough, Monday night the weather radio went off and in the middle of this huge mess my family gathered in the newfound space created by the impending rummage sale. It became even more apparent that we were blessed with abundance and very few “things” really mattered, especially those relegated to the basement. However, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure-most of our first items in that first u-haul trailer were once “rummage”!
What does this have to do with social media? Two important points-Simplify and be social! First, Decide what is really important to simply share with others. Second, don’t worry about what leaves your door, just what you allow to come back in to your life!
