We’re in love with stuff – with shopping, with owning, with collecting.

Our obsession with stuff has become unhealthy. When we have a void in our lives, we buy things. When we have problems, we buy things.This obsession with stuff leads to owning a lot, and yet this stuff doesn’t fill our lives with meaning.

It leads to deep debt, from buying so much, and financially we’re worse off than ever, because of this obsession with stuff.

We buy things when we’re depressed, we buy things for others to show how much we love them … and in this way, stuff has separated us from actually dealing with our emotions, blocked us from truly connecting with others.

Let’s replace that lust for stuff with a lust for life.

Here is an idea – Rediscover a passion for life. Get outside and feel nature, appreciate the beauty of the world around you.

Everyone in Dominica and in the world by extension has reasons to be depressed, to feel defeated, and to “give up.” Everyone has lost someone or something they love; weather it’s through tough financial/emotional/career times. Every day I come across people who worry greatly about where the life is heading. The joy of being human and alive is our ability to make choices.

I have decided to live my life purposely. I will create my reality and take any unforeseen bumps as bumps, not as complete roadblocks. I can’t bring my loved ones back to life, but I can live my life knowing their influence on me continues through my actions.

Forgive the air of bragging that follows, but I like to do every now and then, count my blessings. I thought it might be interested to share my list of blessings:

1. I am alive.
2. I am healthier than ever before.
3. I have beautiful and loving fiancée
3. I am strong enough to move around freely (this one is for you Grandma).
4. I have eliminated my debt, and have a decent emergency fund saved up.
5. I live on a tropical island in an apartment with a gorgeous view of the ocean and sunset each day.
6. I live a relatively simple life.
7. I have great friends, both online and off.
8. I am alive!

That’s not a complete list of course, but it’s some of the highlights. Why are you glad to be alive? Count your blessings — your list won’t be the same as mine, but there will always be things to be grateful for, and you should never compare your list with others. Just be glad of what you do have.

Today is a gift, for each of us. What are you going to do with it? How will you make the most of this life?
