Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing else to add, but when there is nothing more to take away”.
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
We have many things that we don’t need at all , yet we are always looking for more.
We already have a lot, yet we still want .
And from this derive anxiety, stress , competition, frustration.
What we own mainly acts as a burden on our shoulders: we are afraid of thieves, we fear dents and scratches and we no longer have spaces to store our things.
We cling to what we own, until we suffer it . And we continue to accumulate.
Why don’t we try to get rid of what we don’t really need?
Why don’t we start giving away, recycling or eliminating all those objects, paperwork and clothes that crowd our homes and lives?
Why don’t we try to make room and start welcoming what really makes us feel alive?
Not objects, not cars or telephones, but people, feelings and passions .
Why don’t we try to live lighter, freer, simpler ?
We try to stop buying unnecessary things, we eliminate what we don’t need, we learn to be satisfied .
Let’s try to focus on what is really important and essential for us.
