Everything I possess are not only part of me, I see them as my loving friends. I don't like being separated from them. If for any reason I need to be parted from them, I feel it's important to let them know why.
When I left my boots at the shoe repairs to be heeled, I felt a bit of sadness. So in thought I assured my boots that the cobbler was going to heal them and make them feel much better and I would be back to collect them later. I felt better after I had sent the thought.
I was so happy to be reunited with my friends. :-)
