Do you remember your childhood experiences?

In a colossal waste of money, the US government funded a study that showed that people are happier when the pay for an experience instead of possessions. That house and car you spend your money on don't make you happy but that trip you took to the islands to scuba dive stays in your thoughts for a long time. You talk about it and relive it many times. Who didn't know that? All you childhood memories are of things you did not those new shoes you wore to school.

The Simple Life is about the experiences
When you live the simple life, you do away with unneeded possession and substitute experiences. These experiences are easier because you are no longer tied to heavy debt to pay for those possessions. More and more people are figuring this out as money is scare during the depression but they are really enjoying their experiences instead of buying a new house or fancy new car.

Possessions versus experiences
Change your life by taking away one of your possessions like cable, cell phone, or any unneeded but desired item. Take that money and do something you have always wanted to do. Plan it, look forward to it, do it, and relive it. These are the experiences that define us and we talk about in old age. Make a list of different experiences and start doing the local ones first. Soon, your experiences will define you and not your possessions. Life is all about the journey.
