At this phase of my life, I have come to understand one thing for sure: materialistic possessions can only provide temporary happiness. These things are vulnerable to being destroyed, stolen, taken away, or discarded at any moment. The reason I say this is because I had a silver chain that I used to wear around my waist when I was a kid. As I grew up and my waist size increased, I began wearing it around my neck. However, one early morning while I was out jogging, the chain was snatched by unknown bikers wearing masks. I made an effort to catch them, but unfortunately, I couldn’t. That chain held sentimental value for me. Since then, I made a conscious decision to detach myself from any materialistic belongings of mine.
Nevertheless, I do take care of all my possessions, such as my watch, laptop, mobile phone, and others. However, there is one item that I keep with me, which holds great significance and is very dear to my heart – my money purse. It’s not because it holds money for me, but because it contains a picture of me with my parents. I remember this picture was taken in a studio during my college days. Initially, I was hesitant to go for the photo shoot as I felt embarrassed. But now, that picture has become one of my most important and cherished possessions. It allows me to reminisce about the moments I have left behind.
