Abundance Without Attachment – The New York Times

Thank you New York Times and Arthur C. Brooks who is a contributing opinion writer and president of the American Enterprise Institute.

This editorial in the Sunday Times perfectly captures the way I feel about the buying, buying, buying insanity that hits this country every year at holiday time!

In this article, an interview actually, Brooks hears these words, “There is nothing wrong with money, dude. The problem in life is attachment to money.” from his interviewee  (who, himself is a bit of a surprise).

How do you break it?  How do your children take the break?  Easy on both counts per Brooks.  Stop collecting things: start collecting experiences.

And there it is.

So, with many thanks….please read this article and pass it along if you want to make a start at changing the “things” you are attached to and beginning to enjoying the holiday season in a whole, new way.
