I ONLY FEEL ANGRY WHEN I SEE WASTE. WHEN I SEE PEOPLE THROWING AWAY THINGS WE COULD USE

“I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things we could use.”⁣
—Mother Teresa⁣

It drives me crazy when things are just absently thrown away. I remember back in high school these teenagers would have the their phones & throw them down on purpose for it to break since they knew their parents would buy them the latest new phone. It would make me so angry. I know I became aware of not just throwing things away that could be used from my Momma . We would always be making crafts out of shoeboxes & things we would find around the house. It wasn’t due to lack of income either and that is what we had to do like some families out there. It was because my Momma understood the importance of using items until they could no longer be used because that’s how she was brought up by her grandmother. When I would have a tear in one of my clothing items it wasn’t “Momma we need to go to the store” it was “Momma can you sew this back together?” I still do that today lol. I have a pair of HER jeans from when she was young that the thread of the lining of one of the legs coming undone and I didn’t even think of throwing them away. Instead I went to a local tailor, a good woman who immigrated here who makes her living tailoring clothes – she loved that the jeans were once my mommas. I think a lot of times you need to be creative “What can I create?”. A few months back I removed the little doors on my TV stand since I wanted an open concept. I first thought about throwing them away but then I kept them & last week I made them into works of calligraphy wall decor for my walls. There is of course the stuff you have to throwaway or get rid of to avoid becoming a hoarder of course. But first think “Can I donate this? Can I fix it? Can I use it for something else?” Candle holders are great to put succulents in if you don’t over water them. Old clothes you can’t donate can be used as cleaning rags. Think outside the box. Have fun with it. Believe me it’s exciting when you create something which you first thought was nothing ♻️ @carolyn_munholland 🤗😘
