"Collect moments, not things"
I've been told many times before that, that maybe if I didn't travel so much, I could drive a better car, or fix my kitchen, or have more savings. We are not unwise or risky with our spendings, but we spend where we have a passion! My kitchen can wait, my car (although fair enough... yes that has had its time in the sun ;). Are all material things, and I learned from a young age, they hold little value. I was brought up in a very small income home. We didn't have frivolous things. We ate well and were loved well, but lived off second hand and used things. I was always told "erica, you don't NEED that, you just want that". When I first moved out on my own, I would search kijiji for coach and Chanel bags used, just to have brand names. And I would buy the goddiest things just cause they said a designer name largely all over it. This was a phase, and has now completely passed (as I proudly flaunt my $30 purse from winners haha). I have shifted my desire from purchases, to experiences, and so far I have not regretted it a second. I actually find travelling very humbling. We are such a small creature in the scheme of things. The world is large and vast, with soooo much diversity. And I'm often crushed to see how many people live. How small a means many in the world have to work with. And it's humbling beyond belief. We in North America are beyond lucky. We have everything available at our fingertips. Even welfare live in a world of luxury compared to most the world! .
With experiences, comes wisdom. (Not that I claim to be wise)
