Last week, I de-cluttered my Kids’s toy world.
I got a prompt – What if toys had feelings! and here is the toy story.
A Fictional Toy story
I scattered them all on bed and a white squeaky Fish screeched- “Ouch! It hurts”- Heavy Yellow car hit her on his head.
I announced – “Today, I will clean the clutter”. A wave of panic spread in the room. Every toy started making noise.
I picked the little fish up and placed it aside. Fish was confused and murmured- “OMG! Will I be out today?”
A blue bike smirked in proud but its smile disappeared when I said- “Bike will be of no use now as its wheels are gone. Out.”
As I picked few broken Building blocks, they went sad separating from the entire set.
It was a mixed bag of feelings that day- Some were sad being dejected, some were smiling in victory as they made to my list, some were confused what will happen to them.
I was sad too, as I bought them with love but separation from them is inevitable.
I divided them into 2 sets and found the dejected ones saying sad goodbye to the rest of them.
I made them understand that it is the part of life. Don’t worry- you will find another place to live in. I bid farewell to them that day but kept them in my memories.
