“The willingness to share does not make one charitable; it makes one free.”
— Robert Brault
It’s hard work to have stuff.
Everything we own needs maintenance and care, or at least a place to be stored. Cars, appliances, plumbing, heaters, photographs, computers, and on and on. Hoarding our possessions is difficult. Every thing needs attention.
There’s only so much time in a day. If we spend all our time caring for our things, there’s not a lot of room left over for anything. Let alone joy, friendship, and happiness.
Share some of your stuff. Give away things you don’t need. You’ll end up with more time.
Time for … ?
Well that’s up to you.
But if giving away a few of your possessions gives you more time, what do you think giving away a little of your time will do?
(Oh, by the way. When you’re volunteering, you’re not acquiring more stuff.)
Yesterday’s gift of time … Took my son to his piano lessons, and three more drives to three schools.
