When I worked with my client today, I realized the importance of being surrounded by stuff that you love. She was so proud to show me her gifts from Europe that she got from years ago. What was apparent was that she hand-picked each of this item and cherished each one. Each item came with a story. The details of the picture frame, the umbrella, the bar cart, the eating utensils, and the tea set were very intricate. Each item sparked joy for her. She didn’t value quantity, but she chose quality. I believe there is something to gain from this. Instead of just consuming, why not consider the value of each item? What does a particular object mean to you ? Is it a prized possession or just something you got it because it was on sale?
