The things we leave behind are the things we collected because they were the must-haves of the moment.

After fifteen trips to the local Good-Will store, to drop off the things I had not seen, or held, for several years, I asked myself and wondered why?

It is ironic, the stuff I collected was based on a previous need, want, or desire, only to leave behind, walk away from and never see again.

What we need today is an afterthought tomorrow.

So, the time and money spent on the fixation of needs and wants accumulate to become the things we leave behind.

What will you collect today?
