Stuff...

Start from the start. Life is happening, days are days and weeks are weeks. Soon a year, then another. Dreams are dreamt, smiles are had and tears fall. All in all it’s life happening and you are you.  Then in a moment you see it or maybe you hear it. At the end of it you’ve felt the raw, indiscriminating pain and fear. How you deal with it going forward will be your defining scar for the rest of your life. You can hide it or expose it.

I’ve been there and unfortunately, yet fortunately, more than once or twice, more than three times even. Each time I’ve dealt with it by promising to move life towards a more satisfying road. Now you can be religious, you can be deep in theory or philosophy; you can choose any method you want to help sooth your fear of the unknown. I won’t delve into those topics. However, I think we can all agree that our physical time here is limited at best. So why would we waste time focusing on the things that in the end really are meaningless. Your “stuff”. OK, ok so you have children and you want for them. I absolutely get that or maybe you don’t have children and you just want for yourself, I get that too. But what you want is situations, things or stuff that make you satisfied and happy. Right? Happiness and satisfaction are pretty much the end goal, broad stroked yes, but happiness and satisfaction can cover it, no? Hmm, maybe the one single word that can cover it, even better with a bit more definition is Wealth.  Umm no, not quite. I know, how about Prosperity? Yeah, defined as; “the condition of enjoying wealth, success, or good fortune.”

What if taking a journey and seeing something or experiencing something can bring that to you? Right now, with out the years of punching the time clock? Even if for a brief moment in time? Can you open your mind enough to let that happen? Can you find more journeys of the same to renew the prosperity again, and again?

My wife and I did. We are taking our children there too. To teach them that life isn’t about “stuff.”
