I have to admit that when I first started this little experiment I was expecting it to be easy to find 52 things that I couldn’t live without. After only seven weeks it’s become very clear to me that while I do love to surround myself with beautiful things I’m not really that vested in most of the things filling my house. We take the objects around us on a daily basis for granted and rarely take the time to sit and appreciate them. This little journey has made me take the time to take a good look at my surroundings and really figure out what makes my home my own. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have items that I would be really sad if I had to give them up but it’s made me realize that I don’t need a bigger house or more space. I think I’d be much happier with fewer things that are special and important to me than a bunch of things that I purchased just to fill and empty space. What in your home makes you the happiest?
