In addition, having relocated all of my remaining belongings from Maryland to Florida, I once again have access to all of my "stuff". A lot of that "stuff" includes craft materials, fabric, etc. that I have had intentions for a long time now to convert into marketable items and/or sell out-right. Given the relatively unique or peculiar nature of some of the materials, I feel I'll have better luck Adding Value with my own creative efforts rather than trying to just sell the raw materials. But, of course, Adding Value takes energy and time, and selling, at least for some items in particular, takes Timing. Unfortunately, I just missed the Holiday Season for this year, but...hopefully...if my living situation remains stable...I can have a bunch of stuff ready to sell by this time next year.
In the mean time, I am putting together a new plan, looking for local opportunities, flea markets, etc. to sell off and/or find homes for everything else I have that does not fall into the "Holiday" category. Having lived more or less with only those clothes, toilettries, etc. that I could carry on my bicycle - on the one hand it is nice to have access to all of my "stuff" again - and, on the other, I am feeling a little overwhelmed and confronted by just how much work lies ahead to convert all of my "straw" into "gold". Nevertheless, that is what I am intent on doing.
I will continue to post notices here of my progress.
Thanks to all of you who are continuing to follow my story. A part of me wishes, for your sakes, that it could all have been a little more straight forward, but, at least in my case, you really are getting to see that things in life seldom are (straight forward), and that intentions do not always manifest immediately in the way we might first imagine. At this point, I am just as curious as some of the rest of you might be to see how the rest of my life turns out!
Peace and Love to All in what remains of the Holiday Season and Throughout the Coming Year!
