Have you ever thought about your keys?

I was watching a movie ( a detective show )
and the detective solved the murder mystery
when he found the victims KEYS.

He knew that one of the keys on this key chain
had to be  the key to the victims home.

And it was. And of course he solved the murder mystery!!

what stood out to me
and got me to thinking
was the huge amount of keys on this particular key chain.
It was 50 keys.
How complicated could this victims life be?
What could all those different keys open?
Then I started thinking about how few keys I now have on my key chain.

I had so many keys last year.
My showroom,
my house,
my locker at the health club, keys to the cabana, keys to my trunk at the barn,
keys to mailboxes ..... the list goes on.

Now that I have started over,

A fresh new ME , living in Maine.....

I have just a few keys.

Home, car, and post office box.

The weight of those keys obviously was too much for me.
Today my life is simple.
Perhaps more simple than I wish it to be.

Most days I am thrilled with my very light key chain.

*I now have just 3 keys*

I am trying to reinvent myself here.
It's freaky.
I have no past here.
No one really knows who I am and who I have been.

I mean I lived it Boca Raton for almost 30 years.....

How many keys do you carry?
Have you ever thought about this 'key' thing?

Much love to my friends.
Have a great weekend.

  1. I think simplifying life is a good thing! Hope you are well - starting to get hot here now and you can start to enjoy the beautiful Summer soon! Sorry I've been so MIA lately - been swamped with work, etc. Please come over and enter my give-away. xo

  2. Loved your key sentiment Renee and the motion of new beginnings. I wish you well in this new chapter in your life. It seems to me that you have found the right is time to turn them. Something that can often be easier said than done. Good luck! xx

    1. J,
      i love that!!!!

      i do need to turn the keys to open 'the doors' of my future!!


  3. Hi Renee

  5. Happy Mother's Day, sweet Renee! I hope that you have a wonderful day.
    This is the most thought provoking post I have read in a long time. My keychain has gotten lighter too, and I love that. It is fabulous to be in a new town, to start over.

  6. Keys never looked so beautiful! Happy Mothers day Renee, hope its wonderful!

  7. Dayum....I have FAR too many keys. It is laughable! Happy keyless Mothers Day Renee!!

  8. Happy Mothers day Renee!!
    I HAVE thought about this; whenever I see someone with a keying filled with a dozen or more keys I always wonder about their life!
    Like you I have very few keys and I love it! So are you reinventing yourself up in Maine?
