When Carolyn Mallon lost her precious Teddy bear (and every other sentimental item and wedding gift) in a storage-unit mix up during a move, she was heartbroken. But she soon learned that losing everything was just that -- losing every thing. It wasn't losing what mattered most to her: her precious kids. She had them, and most of all, she had time with them, time to experience life with them. And that was what mattered. That is what matters. Now is all we have with the people we love. Let's not let our stuff distract us from the people who matter. Read Carolyn's beautiful story of discovering minimalism here.
