Things Own Us

We once owned this Bug.

Pretty Sweet!

But over time, I learned . . .

We don't own anything. 

Things own us.

Things we own get used. They get older. They need maintenance, attention. They wear out and eventually break.  

Then they need fixed. Or donated. Or tossed. All valid actions depending on the thing.

This is not to suggest, we should not own anything.

This is to suggest, we should be aware of what we own and be aware of how much time and money is required to own our things.

Every convenience has a cost. Every thing can serve to limit our freedom.

We don't own anything. 

Things own us.

Food for thought.
