This is First World Fridays #FWF (check out the first FWF here) where I share the frivolous stuff that I allow to occupy my mind, and I turn it into an expression of gratitude. Please do it the same – in the comments, Facebook, Twitter, privately within yourself. Tag it #FWF (yes, I’m asking you to tag your silent prayers) and let’s start a revolution!
My #FWF In a spare closet I have a stack — a heap! — of discarded clothes and toys and household crap. This morning I tossed in an Ann Taylor knit sundress that was just too stretched out to properly cover my boobs and the gigantic mass of First Worldliness nearly toppled over.
Why don’t I just take it all to the Goodwill already? Too much effort!
See, that would require several trips from said closet to my car which is more often than not parked three or four blocks away with the wire shopping cart, then schlepping across the neighborhood, double-parking with the hazards on and praying I don’t get a $60 parking ticket, and praying I remember to get the receipt so (god forbid) don’t miss an opportunity to write this mound off my taxes.
- I’m grateful I live in a time and place where having too much stuff is a problem. I mean, really people.
- I have an extra closet. A luxury in this town!
- I have a car.
- The Goodwill.
- That I can go shopping and replace every single discarded thing — and then some.
- Charity. And love for my fellow man.
Now your turn! What is your #FWF? Please share in comments! Please? It will make me feel better about myself.
