For the whole month of December, and counting down to 2017, I shall be joining the (online) community, sharing one post a day of something I’m grateful for. From the teeny weeny tiny, to the life changing enormously great.
My favourite ‘things’.
Eschewing obsessing over inanimate objects, in favour of experiences, does something to one’s internal hardwiring. As mentioned before, on a previous gratitude post, experiences > things.
Well, as a “recovering minimalist”, and as a result of espousing this view, and living this lifestyle, it has resulted in the majority of my possessions being my “favourite”. Being more, with less… consequently, my favourite things, aren’t things. Instead more like a handful of stories, people, and moments from various points in my 20-something years.
Hoarders echo this rhetoric, so perhaps we are both ‘right’. Albeit, it’s not a competition…
