Are You Letting Your Things Have Power Over You? – Episode 053

Even as minimalist’s, we can admit, splurging on nice things can be exciting. We sometimes get a temporary high from a purchase, especially if it gives us “joy”. But with such a feeling, we risk giving all the power to our possessions and take power away from who we are as individuals.

So how do we toe the line between enjoying a purchase, seeing the value in what we have while simultaneously detaching ourselves from our things?

That’s what we discuss in this episode. We share our internal struggles of finding happiness in things while trying to keep perspective about what ultimately matters.

  1. A thought provoking and timely episode. I especially needed to be reminded about properly looking after material items. Have a happy and safe Minimalist holiday season everyone!
