The fact that I have virtually no material possessions right now doesn’t bother me at all. No car, no home in fact, the only things I have are one ageing laptop and just enough clothes to see me through a week between washes.
Actually, it’s quite liberating. If you have nothing to lose, you can’t worry about losing it. I don’t think I’ll ever strive, like I used to, for ‘things’ again. Your possessions don’t define you as a person, who you are does.
My only dream now is to have a roof over my head that I can call my own. Preferably in the country and near to my children and stress-free work that pays enough so that I can pay the maintenance for my children, be able to treat them now and again, live reasonably and that’s about it.
This is a dream that I and probably lots of other people have had for a long time. Positive thinking; I might actually be able to achieve it now.
