This post comes with another little preview of my Contrast shoot last month. I should have the rest of the photos from the shoot up in a couple days. But that’s not the point of this post. The point is that I have all these props filling up my garage. All things which I find really cool and would love to have on display in my house. However, there are two problems. Number one I only have so much room, and number two I committed to myself a long time ago that I would NOT be a junk collector, and I would not put too much value on temporal things. You might say that seems a little strange. But if you think about it, what if a great opportunity comes up to move to Europe or somewhere for a year. I don’t want to be sentimentally attached to everything in my house. I want to be able to get rid of it all in a moments notice if need be. I don’t want to feel bad if the house burns down. (one good reason to have offsite backups of all your photos). In addition to all the practical things I want to keep my focus on heaven and eternity without being constantly worrying about a bunch of stuff here. lol.
All to say I have decided that as much as I have become attached to my purple couch, and as magnificent of a couch as it is. I think it will have to go. If nothing more than a life lesson to me to make sure I am remember my convictions.
On the other end of that spectrum, that means the purple couch is available to you! I have someone coming by at 3:30 tomorrow who has offered my $250 for it, but if anyone can make me a better offer it’s yours!
