could you still love life?

If all the things that are not a natural part of you were taken away, all the things you bought, the things you believe make you special.....the house, the money, all that stuff you just had to own,  and anything else that you believe makes you better, more sparkly, more desirable than others.....if it were all gone and you were stripped down, so all that was left was a human being owning only what's on the inside, would you still feel worthy....could you still love life...would you love what you're left with?

I hope so.

(illustration is "little girl lost" by me)


  1. Yep :-) I did just that in 2006. I sold almost everything I owned. Most people don't realize it, but they become a slave to the things they own. True freedom is to not be tied down by material things.

  2. .."freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose"...
    I guess that's pretty true, huh?
