Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself...
In her book "Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself," Lori reminds us that our love should be for the special people and memories in our lives, not their possessions.  
"Memories are something you keep with you at all times. Take a minute to close your eyes and put your hand over your heart. Now think about a loved one.
Story after story comes to mind even though you aren’t holding any of their belongings. You can remember them, without storing mass quantities of their possessions. Your love for them is always with you, not hidden in a box somewhere.
Again, with your hand over your heart and your eyes closed, think about a special day such as your wedding day or a special vacation. The love and excitement is there, yet you aren’t holding any mementoes. You don’t need your wedding dress or state shaped magnets to remember special days, especially if an abundance of these items is keeping you from loving yourself."
