What defines us? Is it our possessions, our memories, or a combination of both? A few years ago one of my favorite bloggers, Emma Reddington from The Marion House Book did a series of posts about her 52 favorite possessions. I really enjoyed following along week to week getting a glimpse into her life and the stories behind each of her selections.
In my attempt to consume less I thought it would be a great exercise to sift through what I already own and determine what is it that makes those items special to me. So once a week for the next 52 weeks I’ll be sharing an object that I wouldn’t want to live without and why it’s special to me. I think we take what we have for granted sometimes and it’s a good exercise for us all to take a step back and appreciate the things that are right in front of us.
I’m not sure what will end up on the list but I think it will help put things into perspective for me. One of our goals in the coming year is to downsize into a smaller space and this will give me a great opportunity to figure out what would stay and why.
