Do You Have Enough Stuff?

Quotes and Notes #185, May 13,

“Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.”—Epicurus—

It is sometimes difficult to let go of superfluous possessions but we must, at times, take a close look at our acquisitions and determine which are enjoyable and which cause stress, trouble, or inconvenience in our lives.

Proust wrote once that a good gift should be consumable because the alternative brought with it “the burden of display or storage.” I think about this when purchasing a gift for someone.

But a nice day and a shared smile are always enjoyable.
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz–“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

Are there ever enough flowers?

    I like this very much. The idea of a consumable gift–yes. That resonates with me at this point in my life.
