Yesterday evening, Vanilla surprised me with a small Worry Eater.
They are flat, fluffy plushie monsters with zippers for their mouths and big round eyes.
He had noticed that I'm worrying about waaay too many things and that I'm constantly stressed out,
so he decided to get me one.
The purpose of these little critters is to write down your worry/worries on a piece of paper and shove it down the Worry Eaters mouth and zip it up,
so he can "eat" them away for you. They are produced in Germany, but as far as I know,
Haywire Group distributes them in America too.
This is him, a small Rumpel :3fhrannie.tumblr.com/image/1342…
As I'm not someone who can communicate my feelings very well,
and who doesn't want to nag Vanilla constantly with my problems,
this is a very good way to get rid of them
(or well, not to think about them as frequently as usually at least).
Just looking at his little nubby arms makes me smile and forget about most things.
It also feels really good and relieving to write down your feelings and feed them to that little monster, it's a nice symbol of letting go.
Since Christmas season is coming up, and you might know someone
who worries a lot about things or is going through rough times,
I can definitely recommend them as a present, they come in 20 different designs in Germany,
and in the States I think there's like 10 at the time?
Also there's small and large sizes too and they're really high quality.
Have you already bought all your Christmas presents this year?
Or are you more of a last minute present shopper?
I hope you guys have a very nice day today!
