What To Do With Candle Holders

candle holdersThere are now over 7 billion people in the world and climbing.  I figure when I sneeze, at that very moment someone else in the world is also sneezing. Or if I throw up then someone else in the world is also throwing up (misery loves company) so when I was trying to decide what to do with brand new candle holders that have been in the closet for about 10 years then I figure someone else out there was trying to decide the same thing.

I bought these because they were on sale, in a fancy store, for a just in case I needed a wedding gift moment. What was I thinking? For starters, when someone gets married they usually have a “wedding wish list” at their favorite store. It makes it so much easier to buy a gift and this way they get what they want instead of 10 toasters.

It’s painful to get rid of something you paid good money for. I say good money but it was on sale and I’m pretty sure I didn’t pay all that much. This is when I decided to look on ebay. More and more I do that, so I can assure myself I’m not sitting on some unknown fortune.

There were some for sale, very similar for $15.00 (0 Bids), another for $19.00 or best offer and then I found the exact pair for, again $15.00 with 0 bids.

All these years taking up space. It never added any value to my life. They were moved around several times because I didn’t quite know where to store them and the time has come.

It’s strange to think that I would have to emotionally detach from these. It’s clear to me that I won’t be gifting these anytime soon so decision is made.


Give yourself permission to emotionally detach.
