Using Stuff to Get to Enough

I like being in that place between work and play.  It is not a blurry, ill-defined place for me.  It is where my imagination is happy, and often, productive.  I create games that make my work more playful.  And I have a new one.

It is called “I own it; I use it.”  It is less than a week old, but I like what it is doing for me.  I received an inquiry for burgundy and gold Christmas stockings.  I have suitable fabric in my stash.  There is a vegetable soup simmering in my kitchen, created from what was in the refrigerator and the pantry.  There is nothing new about what I am doing.  What is new is the focus.  And my attitude.

If I am simply using up what I have, I can miss the pull of another shopping experience.  When I am playing my game, I feel empowered by my choices.  I have collected these materials and equipment and today I am choosing to use them for what is required now.  The game is not about stuff.  It is about my attitude.  I believe it is part of my journey to discovering my own “enough.”

Do you want to play?  What have you used today that has delighted you?
