I know 'stuff' won't make me happy.
But sometimes I get caught up in wanting stuff. A new camera lens, an ipad, a double kayak, a cargo bike, a sound recorder, and a food dehydrator. I've wanted to buy each and every one of these at some stage over the past month or so. Its ridiculous!
I know I can be just as happy, or more so, without them.
I read this article on the weekend: Living so your heart's content by Bronwyn McNully. It gave me hope that one day we'll live in a society where people care about 'friendship, co-operation, compassion and wanting to make the world a better place', rather than money and stuff.
"There's a growing awareness among people around the world, from all different walks of life, recognising there's a different way to move forward that's more healthy and sustainable and will lead us towards more fulfilling, healthier and happier lives. and a more sustainable future for our kids."

You too? Do you get caught up in wanting stuff that you think you need, but know you don't?
