“Intuitively, we know that the best stuff in life isn’t stuff at all, and that relationships, experiences and meaningful work are the staples of a happy life.
I like material things as much as anyone… But my experiences show that after a certain point, material objects have a tendency to crowd out the emotional needs they are meant to support… Often, material objects take up mental as well as physical space.” — Graham Hill
Great New York Times article, shared by a friend, on how simplifying life can lead to happiness. Simplifying how much stuff you collect, canceling out the noise of messes and needing to accumulate more. This is directly tied to one of the to-do’s on my 25 by 25. I’m extremely happy to say that I’ve been doing a pretty great job so far.
Now, to sell off more of my stuff on Craigslist.
