While the world keeps getting bigger and filled with more options and new and better things. It’s always the common things in life that capture my heart. Not the latest new gourmet food but those ridiculously ordinary things that have stood the test of time.
They are the things that I knew as a child and the things that still give me comfort as an adult whenever I see them. Like french fries, or that favorite pair of sneakers.When it comes to the stuff of my life, I like to keep things as simple as possible. That’s the real magic.
Sure, today, I have too much stuff and I really should get rid of some of it. But each time I pick up an object my mind floods back to the memories that it contains. I do eventually say goodbye to these little things, as I’ve no intention of becoming a hoarder, but it’s a slow process. It’s difficult to decide if a memory is worth keeping. How will I know if I’ll really miss it until it’s already gone? How about you?
