Why is it that when we become young adults and then newly married, our main goal seems to be to accumulate things? We acquire heirlooms and things to decorate our homes with. We add and add and want new things, better things, more things. But then when we get older – all we seem to do is to want to simplify and get rid of things?
Why is it that when we are young, we try to look and act like an adult but when we are an adult – we still want to look and act young?
And how come when we have a lot of energy, we are busy with jobs, parenting and other responsibilities and when we have no energy as we get older; we have all the time in the world?
I’m just wondering.
