I have a very simple recommendation for my kids to live a happy and fulfilling adult life: Never own anything. Ever.
I base this simple life changing piece of knowledge on the fact that I have recently packed up the contents of the house I have lived in for the past 14 years, and I have decided that I have approximately 150 percent too much stuff.
I had a garage sale recently. And following the basic rules of hosting a garage sale, I took out a classified ad that read: “Moving sale: furniture, household items, toys, sports equipment, tools and much more!”
I’ve never been really good at change. I like stability. I like normalcy. I like routine. To give you perspective — I have eaten roughly 15,000 breakfasts in my life. Since I can remember, about 13,000 of those have been maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal.
I love a nap.
Love, love, love a nap. Just a quick recharge of the system. And I especially love napping while traveling.
As a kid, falling asleep in the car and waking up at your destination was as close to teleportation as you could get. I mean, think about it — you doze off somewhere around Atlanta and then, boom, you’re waking up in your bed.
