Does What You Collect Effect What You Attract to Yourself?

I HAVE TONS OF COLLECTIONS–& HAVE ALWAYS HAD COLLECTIONS- ALL COULD BE SOLD & MADE MONEY ON— BUT — WHY DO I HAVE THEM– “because it evokes love or peace or joy in you?– YES– THEY DO!!! I ALSO HAVE A ROCK COLLECTION–(NOT MUCH MONEY THERE) 🙂 POST CARD COLLECTION THAT I STARTED WHEN I WAS A VERY YOUNG GIRL– COULD NOT AFFORD THINGS WHEN WE TOOK TRIPS–BUT I COULD AFFORD POSTCARDS!! I HAVE BOOK COLLECTIONS– LOTS OF DIFFERENT GLASSWARE COLLECTIONS– COLLECTIONS OF VINTAGE JEWELRY — THAT I WEAR & MAKE INTO OTHER ART FORMS–& FOLK ART COLLECTIONS & MANY DIFFERENT ANTIQUE COLLECTIONS– I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A PICKER– BOUGHT THINGS I KNEW WERE WORTH MORE & OVER THE YEARS HAD BUSINESSES WHERE I RESOLD & MADE A LIVING FOR US!! BUT I ALWAYS COLLECTED THINGS I REALLY REALLY ENJOYED & KNEW THEIR WORTH!! AND MANY MANY MANY TIMES IN MY LIFE– I PUT THOSE COLLECTIONS I HAD– UP FOR SALE TO PAY BILLS– ESPECIALLY WHEN I WAS A SINGLE MOTHER!! SO NO MATTER HOW MUCH I HAVE ENJOYED ANY & ALL MY COLLECTIONS OVER THE YEARS– IN THE BACK OF MY MIND– I KNEW THEY COULD ALSO BE SOLD– NO MATTER HOW MUCH I LOVED THEM & PAY THE BILLS!!! IN ALL THE YEARS I OWNED ANTIQUE SHOPS– ALL THE OTHERS ANTIQUE SHOP OWNERS I WORKED WITH ALSO– COLLECTED & SOLD THINGS THEY LOVED & ENJOYED & KNEW THE MOST ABOUT– MY SPECIALTY HAS ALWAYS BEEN CERTAIN KINDS OF GLASSWARE!! STILL TO THIS DAY– NO MORE BUSINESSES– BUT MY HOME HAS BEEN DECORATED FOR VALENTINE’S DAY– SINCE I TOOK DOWN THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS– I LOVE DECORATING MY HOME FOR EVERY DIFFERENT SEASONS WITH MY COLLECTIONS!! LOVE THEM– THEY MAKE OUR HOME THE HOME IT IS!!!!

About sondasmcschatter

I was encouraged to start a blog as I suffer from MCS /multi chemical sensitivities & other health problems & I have helped several hundred others who suffer from MCS set up "Safe Homes" & given them encouragement & HOPE & share information & lots of laughs along the way also. When you choose to use fragrances, chemicals, or pesticides, You are not simply making a choice for yourself, You are making a choice for everyone around you!!!! What makes me an expert on MCS-- not a darn thing-- BUT have lived with it for years-& years- & have learned lots the HARD WAY-- by experience!! And want to give others help & HOPE & encouragement -- as I know there are not many who understand what it is to live with this illness- & ALL THAT GOES WITH IT!!! Internet has been my way of communication with many who we are confined to their "safe homes" all over the USA & other countries!! I have communicated with many HUNDRED by e-mail-- phone & letters & internet forums-- I hope this blog will help in a better way to share laughter-- hope & information!!! As for many are not any longer able to even leave their homes-- & communication is sooo important & sharing & encouragement & GIVING HOPE!!!
