Art supplies

If an object is a circumstance, therefore neutral, then when we answer the question “is it serving me?” were actually giving our thought about that neutral object. If that’s true, and my thought is “no, it’s not serving me” then I could decide to manage my mind around it instead of get rid of it. Is that correct? The reason I ask this is because I love my art supplies and don’t want to get rid of them because I love doing art, but right now when I look at them I get anxious because I haven’t been painting lately. I would like to mange my mind around painting instead of getting rid of my art supplies that aren’t serving me at the moment.
