Who am I without my stuff?!

I wanted to expand a little on yesterday's blog where I wrote about the need to acquire 'stuff.' Obviously we need to have things so that we can live comfortably, but when does this 'stuff' become a problem??

I've been thinking a lot lately about who I am, and how I would feel about myself without all of these external items. Like my home, car, clothes, furniture, etc. I think, well I actually know, I would be lost! I value having 'stuff', I believe it says something about me. I believe it tells people about my success, my competency, and to some; my worthiness.

But here's the thing, I'm not so sure if I want to buy into this belief system anymore. I think it takes a lot of time and effort to acquire so many material items just so that you can live up to a perceived perception of success.

We all want to feel that we're valued, but at what cost? I'm not saying it's not nice to have material items, but when the external becomes more important than the internal then that's where the problem lies.

Well on to my next project, that of building up my inner strength, so that I know who I am and what I really want out of life. I hope some of you will put down your wallets, and build up your internal self-worth with me. Good-luck!

Here's a few funny cartoons on self-worth....enjoy. ;  ) 


In my search for pictures to add to this post, I came upon this woman's site this is her ramblings on 'stuff.' Different then mine, yet quite interesting and inspiring.
