Ripping Off the Bandage

This poor guy loaded up his moving van, ready to drive to Chicago the next day and in the morning came out to find out all his stuff had been stolen. He literally lost everything. So he started keeping a blog of all the things he bought since then and why. It is oddly fascinating. It is an extreme exercise in letting go and practicing mindful consumerism. The hard way.


Is it wrong to kinda wish for that?

I sometimes wish someone would steal all my accumulated junk.

Except for the good stuff I really need.

Or like a lot.

Or has sentimental value.

Or that I might use again someday, even though I haven't touched it in a decade.
