Tethered to Possessions

I saw this really cute basket at Target today. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but the brown wicker made me smile. Then I put it down. I’ve learned that a brief smile from something doesn’t mean I should take it home.

It can be fun discovering a pretty little thing from Target for your home or uncovering something at a garage sale. Finding a great outfit at a sale price gives a charge. But, the thing is – the feeling doesn’t last.

What is left is maintaining what you bought, decluttering when you’ve bought too much and being attached to stuff.

It’s so much easier to live out our dreams when we aren’t tethered to possessions.

Is that initial adrenaline buzz of the buy worth it?
