For this post I wanted to focus on the things that have come into my life that I can’t imagine living without. This does not include people such as my family and friends – that is without saying – there is no way I could live without them or emotions such as love, sadness and happiness. Those emotions are the cornerstone of life and living without them wouldn’t be right. No, for this post, I’m talking about actual things.The things that I have included in this post have become an instrumental part of my life and picturing me living in a world without them is really, really difficult. I understand that this might make me sound prividledged and crass (and I can definitely understand if people have those sentiments – to be honest, I did too) but I did feel that these things needed to be emphasized in their own post on my blog.
1. Cell Phone
2. My king-size bed
I think the first thing on my list would apply to a lot of people out there. I remember a time without cell phones (that would be hard for some of the younger readers) but yes, a time without cell phones – it just sounds crazy. Anyway, companies like Apple, Blackberry, Samsung, Motorolla, LG, Sony, and all other cell phone companies have truly made a ‘killing’ off consumers and have created phones that are so integral to our way of life that it is hard to imagine life without them. That’s how it is with my phone. Everything is on it and I can do anything I need to with it and that’s why it sits at number one on this best three list.
The second thing I can’t live without is my king-size bed. This one might be funny to some but it’s true. I was a student, I’ve slept on futtons, old mattresses etc. but as soon as I purchased my home, I bought a king-size bed and all I can say is that it’s amazing. There is so much room. There is nothing bad I can say.
For my last thing, it was an easy choice. It had to be books. I’m that old-fashioned person that still prefers to hold a book in my hands and read. If I got an e-reader for a gift – sure I wouldn’t refuse it but I would still purchase books. I love books. I love to have them all around the house. They are magical to me (something that I inherited from my father who loved books just as much as me) and I couldn’t imagine not being able to buy them anymore. I know that one day, that is how it’s going to be but for now I’m going to enjoy holding them in my hands.
