Why Do I (You) Collect?


I just got back from the vet with my cat "Spud". He gave us quite a scare, we went away for a couple of day's vacation and on our return we found him very listless. He just laid there in one spot and wouldn't eat or drink any water.

I don't know about you but my heart ran cold with images of what could be wrong, why is he so listless, is he just upset with me for leaving him alone for a while or does he have a virus, was he in a fight, was he poisoned and thus it stormed in my mind....

Now we had a very good friend taking care of him and his uncle "Tigger" while we were away so we knew they were in good hands. To make a long story short we rushed him off to the vet where he was admitted to the animal hospital and a drip put up.

What was wrong with him - a mystery BUT he is better and that is all that counts........

You are probably wondering why I'm telling you this story....

It is simple, with "Spud" being sick it made me think about how much he means to me and my family and God forbid what it would be like should anything happen to him.

If you would like to see what "Spud" looks like and where he got his name from have a look here: http://www.fine-animal-collectibles.com

Now that is why I collect and in my case it is animal collectibles..

Collecting is totally emotional for me the value is not important, it helps me to eternalize my memories of loved one's and good times and that my friend is priceless.

Do something today to eternalize your loved ones. Attach some value to your friendships or give a gift to some one special helping them to eternalize a memory.

Collecting motivates me, it gives me something to look forward to it makes my trips so much more interesting and rewarding.

You know that real feeling of anticipation, the great excitement of what will I find here, it make life interesting and a real blast to live.

Collecting can give you a new dimension of excitement in your life, don't get bored with living it is fun, YOU make it fun...
