More stuff for what?

We all hoard things in our lives, whether we know it or not.

We hoard thoughts, ideas, clothing, furniture, technology, real estate, etc.

And for what? Just to say we have it like that?
Is stuff really a right of passage going into 2015?

Is stuff what creates us, makes us who we are?

No.

But we continue to think so.

We only use but a few things over and over. Getting rid of everything else though, feels like death in an odd way. Why? Because the world made us believe that materialism truly matters. The world pushed it on us enough to think that, the more stuff we have, the better off we are.

This just doesn’t make sense. Unless you can literally carry everything you’ve ever owned or own now with you wherever you go, why keep buying it?

Habitual behavior is why.
Sneaky programming is why.
Us as people not paying enough attention is why.

Get rid of some crap and embrace the new space.

We don’t need more than half of what we actually have.

  1. I agree. We don’t need half the thing we have, but are afraid of letting it go. We’ve been programmed to buy, but not to think.
