I’ve never liked owning things… with the exception of toys when I was a kid. Other than that I’ve never understood why someone would like to own a car, for example – nothing wrong with wanting to do so of course, but personally I feel like owning a lot of things just adds stress into my life instead of adding quality or happiness. I’ve thought this would be something that’d change when I become older, and perhaps it will, but right now it seems like I become less and less interested in owning things the older I get. So perhaps it’s not an age thing after all but rather a sitruunapuu thing? :-)
Currently I feel like it’d be nice to own a laptop, a phone, maybe a couple of good books, some clothes and other necessities, and maybe a few extra things (like a kettlebell and a skipping rope). In reality I own a lot of things, both big and small, and I feel the majority of them are completely unnecessary. I’m just in the process of selling one of the biggest things I own and I really can’t wait to get rid of it, but I’d also like to start getting rid of smaller things I own but don’t really need. Which is why I adopted this goal.
So far today I’ve given away three huge bags of stuff… not a bad start and I already feel better!
