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
