It was cold on our last morning in Vienna as we headed to St. Stephen’s Cathedral. We had just turned the corner from our pension when I spotted the fantastic dolls displayed in this store window. DP was halfway down the block when he realized that I was no longer with him. Uh oh!
Europe is brimming with beautiful, magical things and I’ll confess to wanting to take them home! The good news is that living (in a tiny apartment) in Barcelona over the last three years has helped me learn how to live lighter in order to save more money to travel. I’ve been learning to say, “That’s beautiful but I don’t need that.” Later that day, when I dragged DP into the store, I practiced this mantra. (DP was so proud.)
Often a photo is just as good as owning another beautiful thing that will end up in our storage area.
Try it yourself. “That’s beautiful but I just don’t need it.” Isn’t that great?
