Discovering a New Question to Ask
"We thought we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong." – Bono
People sometimes ask, "How do you keep from wanting the stuff that everyone else has?"
To be honest, I rarely struggle with that desire anymore. But when I do, I try to remember one thing: Since deciding to live with fewer possessions, I have…
- more time for my family.
- fewer things to worry about.
- more money in savings.
- more energy to pursue my passions.
- less clutter in my home.
- fewer distractions in my mind.
- more intentionality in life.
- more generosity in my spending.
- more contentment in my heart.
- more gratitude in my soul.
- and far more opportunity to pursue things of greater worth.
Suddenly, the desire begins to fade away. And as it does, a new question begins to emerge: Why would I want all the stuff that everyone else has when they all want what I already possess?
