Why you shouldn’t keep things just for special occasions
Life. If we think about life as a whole, it is made up of moments on a daily basis. It’s made of special moments too, of course, but it is in everyday routine, boring and annoying, that we are building things that lead us to remarkable moments. And, sometimes we just don’t pay attention to our daily life.

I mean, how many times haven’t you been caught saving things for a “special occasion”? Yeah, a lot, right? But sometimes the special occasion never comes or we just do not arrive in time to have it. And there are these beautiful shoes or a wonderful dress we keep in the closet forever, waiting for an amazing occasion to be dressed.
I know what I’m talking about. My mother (who was right about almost everything but about this was really mistaken), left several things new with this idea of saving them for a special moment. Unfortunately, for her these moments never came.
So, wear your clothes and shoes and use your things. Don’t keep them for a moment that may never come. The future is uncertain.That’s what I’m trying to do, and believe me, I’m happier that way. Because happiness is a daily thing and not a destination. After all, it’s an attitude, a state of mind. And things, no matter how good they are or how they fill our hearts, will always be just things.
