Talking to appliances …

What a great relief it was one day when I freed up myself and #talked to my appliances.  I found myself unloading about my dilemma and after about ten minutes, I felt relieved. My shoulders relaxed, my stress was gone.

Think about it. It could catch on. I simply poured myself a cup of coffee and sat down on the barstool and began telling my problems to my oven. I didn’t have to blow out my hair or find my favorite jeans. An oven doesn’t mind if you’re not dressed chic. It’s looks pretty much the same all the time anyway. And, there was no charge and no traveling involved.

I got the idea years ago when I read about a culture that believed it was important to thank inanimate objects for their service.

So, not to over work the oven, the next time I poured my heart out to the toaster.  You get the idea. And my blender! I don’t think I could ever get along without my blender.

I think that  talking out my problems with appliances might catch on. It has helped me tremendously.

What do you think?  Who or what do you talk to?

    One appliance I would never talk to is the stove. It might ask me to cook!
