Sorry, it would appear that the last Inner Truth linky post was 19th July so technically I have missed a week.
But, what's a week amongst friends eh? If you would like to join in, the linky is at the bottom - just write a relevant post and LINK IT UP! You know it!
And today is when I am ready and inspired for a natural (unforced) update.
Today, my theme is, let the old make room for the new.
Or, what also sits well with me, is new day, new start, new month = 1st August.
(The month when I transform).
So, today I went shopping for a dress as I am going to two weddings in August. This shopping trip was after a trip to the Job Centre (no don't ask!)....
Anyway, I found myself in Marks and Spencers and I bought THIS DRESS... it is Per Una and £49.50. I love it!
|M&S new in - £49.50|
I decided to get a PURSE to match the new bag that was to match the new dress (I know where does it end). I deserve it, I have a YUK Primark £5 purse - what sort of prosperity is THAT going to attract.
Anyway, when I got home I decided to empty my current PRADA bag (a gift from an old boss).
To say what happened next was cleansing, is an understatement.
This is how many receipts fitted in that LITTLE bag:
|You can't see in this photo, but the pile is DEEP and they all fit in that TINY Prada handbag!|
|I'd already decided to throw it away but then noticed this hole, when taking photo, once empty! So that confirmed my decision!|
|This is the gorgeous new purse - yes it is orange!|
|To show just HOW MANY receipts there were I have rolled them up! Look how tatty that gross brown purse is!|
Anyway I found this pink one online, (mine is orange) and was delighted to find that it retails at £87 as I paid £19.99 for it and it is leather AND suede lined. Yes Google also informed me that what I have in fact bought is a travel wallet but I don't care, I love it, and it goes with the colours in my dress and is large enough that on the night, I can dump the bag down and use it as a clutch bag :-)
So, feng shui might be out of fashion but I certainly feel as if I have done some and feel all the better for it.
If you are new to my blog you will wonder what all of this has to do with Inner Truth. Well! The whole thing with this linky is it is about journalling a personal inner journey and THAT is what I am on.
So the receipts will all be burned and the old bag and the old purse will be binned.
For me, August is all about clearing the past to make way for the future.
