Imagine this, you come home from a wonderful family vacation where you have been refreshed and energized, making memories with loved ones, and as you pull up to your driveway you see that your home has been the victim of a fire, causing all of your possessions to be destroyed. After you have been able to process the trauma of the fire, what are you most upset about losing? Are those 35 tupperware containers that barely fit in the cupboard among your most treasured things? I hope that nobody ever experiences the pain of a house fire, and I don’t use the example lightly, but rather to shed light on the disproportionate amount of emphasis we place on “stuff”.
