Adulting: Possessions....

Younger me strongly believed that if I saw something I LOVED (yes, all caps) – a beautiful blouse, a unique necklace, an impressive “thing” that appealed to me, I needed to somehow obtain it; then people would see me and the amazing “something” and connect the two of us together. In essence, I would somehow enrich my reputation by my beloved possessions.

I quickly learned that’s a stressful mindset to live in.

With age has come the liberty of appreciating something without the desire to acquire it.

When I stumbled on this famous quote, I knew I had found a gem:

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.

Because if you pick it up it dies, and it ceases to be what you love.

So if you love a flower, let it be.

Love is not about possession.

Love is about appreciation.” Osho

Welcome to my blog on adulting! Being "older" is worth celebrating in an anxious world that tends to glorify "younger." I hope this site is a place you will find encouragement and positive words.
