The things people discard
tell more about them
than the things they keep
by Hilda Lawrence, The Pavillion
I read this and thought how wise and true! Then I thought about what I've discarded recently and what it says about me.
A few magazines everyday this week, was the first thing that sprung to mind. They reveal my inability to say 'no' to what I perceive is a bargain, reduced subscription rates in the mail!
Why so many...well that tells you, I might love magazines but I really don't have the time to read them. That in turn reveals my natural tendency toward untidyness, as I hoard them in piles around the house for months.So why am I now methodically clearing them out? Two things revealed here: when I set my mind to do something I am always methodical about it. And finally the Hubster hates piles of anything left lying around and I hate to be nagged, especially when I know he's right!
Who knew discarding some magazines would be so revealing!So what have you discarded recently and what does it tell about you?
