Want What You Already Have

One of my favorite sayings is, “want what you already have.”

Taking care of the things we already own is good place to start. Touching your beautiful things will connect you to them.

As you clean, polish, iron or mend them, they will tell you their story. You will notice their details. You will be reminded of their original attraction, why you (or someone else) spent money to purchase them, and the beauty or usefulness they hold.

You may find that connecting to them allows you to let go of wishing for the “next” thing, when you find yourself, wanting what you already have.
