That age old question “if your house were to be on fire, what is one thing you’d get before running out?” Maybe a box of photo albums, your passport, or your computer? For me, I’d get our German shepherd, lemon meringue. (Pictured below). However, it’s really unlikely that I’d get any sort of material possession. The minimalists, Josh and Ryan, talked about this exact subject in a recent podcast. Often times we give too much value to our trinkets. In reality, things are just things. They can be replaced if you truly need them. If my house were to burn to the ground, sure it would be an inconvenience, but it wouldn’t be the end of the world. We are not our stuff.
