Memories are made of this

Sorting Out papersYesterday was an interesting and somewhat sad-happy day. I spent the whole day sorting through a few boxes of old stuff. Mostly paperwork. A few old receipts, a few momentos, even some cash slips and photos dating back a few years.

You see, after I moved out of the house (I’m divorced, you know), my life went into a crazy spin and I  didn’t really open all my boxes. I moved out and I only opened the stuff I really needed because I was working like a madman to earn some money to pay for the mess.

Besides, He was very good to me and placed me in an extremely happy house, filled with love and happiness. I didn’t need a lot. I spent two years soaking up the love I never had, amazed at the wonder of receiving love instead of just giving and not receiving anything back in return. I actually named the house “Happy House”.

But time is a great healer (although a lousy beautician). I moved again to this house and now I have to unpack the last bit of mess. I unpacked everything else first so this is the final bit. Yup, 3 years’ worth. Initially it went quickly because a lot of it is simply paperwork destined for the tax archives, but every now and then something interesting would pop up and I would reminisce for a few seconds.

My parent’s final estate winding up letter. I miss them. I wonder if they would understand?

A photo dating back to seemingly happy times. I thought that was happiness. Now I know better.

Pictures of my children when they were a lot smaller. I hope they will forgive me. I married for love and didn’t mean to push them away. Like I mentioned in an earlier post the person who loves most has least power.

Oh, some sentimental sms messages I wanted to keep and printed out. I actually believed them. How blind can one be.

Ah, here is a report from a private investigator. At the time it was an awesome birthday present. Now it is just some words.

And then it was over. All the boxes unpacked, all the memories relived. I feel better now.

Be the master of your fate, be the captain of your soul, but do not hesitate, should the chance befall you, to be the slave of your heart.
