I absolutely love this philosophy. I was recently reading a blog, http://bloggingyourpassion.com/jonathans-blogging-journey/ by Jonathan Miller where he talked about reading one of my favorite books, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day: How to Survive and Thrive When Opportunity Roars
After reading the book, he and his wife decided that rather than collecting possessions, they would collect experiences. I too have come to this conclusion in life. Experiences bring continued enjoyment through memories and stories. Unlike possessions, experiences don't steal your energy, they energize you! Experiences expand your world. Experiences help you define who you are and enhance your relationships with others. When was the last time you could say that about even one of your possessions?
