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?
