Is there a possession that you obsess about? I see this picture of Lucy, a chocolate lab that really does think of only one thing…24/7, and it makes me wonder. If we could narrow down our obsessions to just one thing, than why do we need to have piles and piles of unnecessary crap filling up our life? Each person in our house can narrow his or her worldly necessities to the bare minimum. Kate just needs a book taken out one at a time at the library. Pete just needs Legos, but we all know theres just not one of those. Chris needs a bike and I need a camera. If our needs are this simple, than why is there a pile so high on my kitchen table of unnecessary objects. I tell Kate all of the time that one passion is really all you needs to feel fulfilled. I often realize that if we just got rid of all of the other useless distractions, then our individual crafts could have half a chance of success. I think the piles of stuff can be attributed to the fact that mankind has a way of never feeling satisfied even long after were full. Well then, it’s time to go on a diet of sorts. If I could only heed my own advice and lose the stuff, I know for sure I would be better off. Maybe today, I’ll dump a huge amount of it in the free pile so it could become another person's “thing”. After all, they say, “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.” No matter what, I plan of making today a lean day, keeping it simple so I can focus on what’s important to me. I feel lighter already.
