It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents men from living freely and nobly.’ ~Bertrand Russell
I noticed this past week on Facebook that a number of my friends were overjoyed that they had received the latest installment of the Sears Wishbook.
When they could be at the beach.
I’m sorry but I don’t get it. You are happy to look at “stuff” that you probably do not need and quite possibly cannot afford.
Now I don’t know this for sure.
But as you look around your place is there any clutter?
If yes, what does all this clutter consist of? Stuff you purchased and that now takes up space.
Add up the money in your head that you have spent on all the stuff you see . That you thought you just had to have. Stuff that was going to make your life so much better. Just ballpark a dollar figure.
I bet you are reluctant to do this because that means you will have to admit to yourself that you wasted money.
You do not need to spend money on material possessions to achieve happiness or fulfillment.
I went to the beach today. It was free. Didn’t spend a dime.(Except a few cents in gas driving there)
And it was an incredible day.
Are you going to declutter and get organized before Christmas arrives? You have about 4 months.
Maybe decluttering the mind is a good idea.
Stop believing that you need to spend money to be happy.
Free your mind.
Your life is good right now without some new item that you really do not need.
