There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. ― John Lennon
I always imagined the postmaster as the-Grinch-who-stole-ALL-packages-sent via airmail.
When i was younger, i would imagine the beautiful gifts sent to us that NEVER got delivered, in the hands of the post-master or one the post-office staff's children..as they played with our toys or wearing our jewellery or shoes or clothes etc etc.
I would get real MAAAAD at the post-master and all of the post-office staff *blame it on misplaced anger* so, i was always AFRAID of the post-master.
While making up a list of the all the things required for setting up shop, i discovered almost ALL of the things i desperately needed, were NOT available locally.
The dreaded FEAR of buying and shipping set in.
i thought, OOH.MY.WOOOOORD, what if the-Grinch-who-stole-ALL-packages-sent via airmail, got his hands on my packages, i will be finished!!
While looking up eBay, i thought to myself, why don't i make a tester purchase?!
If the package is delivered, we're good! if not, well ...the-Grinch-who-stole-ALL-packages-sent via airmail will enjoy an incredible pair of 80s blue aviator sunglasses. so i DID IT ANYWAY.
To my SURPRISE on Saturday evening i received a little package in the mail.
Update:My second purchase from eBay arrived in the mail yesterday (29.Jan.) .. YAAAY! i was awesomely surprised at how quick that delivery was.
My very OWN border punch by fiskars!! So, just in case you are wondering...what's an Border punch??

There was a Grinch-who-stole-ALL-packages-sent via airmail!! Am glad that he is now retired.
