“Our life is the series of moments that is steaming through your consciousness right now, and how you use those moments and what you fill them with is what truly matters, not what you fill your home with. At the end of this short journey, you’ll look back and remember your experiences, the people you loved and who loved you back, the things you did and didn’t do. Not the stuff you had.”
It’s still a scary thought, letting go of an object that’s made me feel secure for so many years. We all have them – our beloved childhood stuffed animals all stitched up, cuddling the memories of childhood past; the favorite book that sits quietly on the shelf, preserving that feeling we felt the first time we read it; the guitar that waits for “one of these days.” We all have the emotional attachment that defines their well-preserved existence.
