Life In A Shoe Box


People have so many hang-ups about how other people live their lives. People always want to keep you in a little box, or they need to label you and fix you in time and location. Alice Walker

Little boys like to collect cards, baseball, hockey, or any sports.  I am not sure about little girls what they prefer to collect.  For my daughter it was Barbie dolls, even this Christmas she received one that she has always wanted but could never obtain it.

For most we put our precious photos, mementos, postcards, and even letters.  Letters from loved ones who went to fight in wars overseas.

For me my life is like one who is limited to a shoe box.  My collection is those things that have been curtailed, many of which I have just lost interest in.  I keep them in that so called shoe box with the thought of maybe taking them out of that box and start to do them again.

Life seems to derail and our focus leans to just getting the train back on the tracks.  This seems futile when I try to get back on track without the proper help, the trained professionals.

All those things that I placed in the shoe box use to make me feel like a complete person.  Reading, music, crafts, movies, etc.,

I have put myself into one label, a label I have placed on myself.  It comes with so much baggage, baggage I should throw off and stop carrying them on my back.

Life feels one dimensional.  I know the answer, but, I do not know how to execute it.

So, a goal for me in 2020 with help from others I want to break out those things I have placed in that shoe box!

    I have a memories box of things that I made or that were important to my childhood. I went through it recently and felt like I’d lost that person I was, and that I’d like to find her again.
