My friend had just purchased it three months ago. I immediately fell into “lust” with this car. I think there were stars in my eyes.
They said, “Take it for a spin,” which I happily did. My stars got bigger. Yep, it was exactly what I wanted. For the whole evening I could not stop talking about that car. Every time I brought it up, my husband just laughed.
As I took my spiritual inventory before sleep that night, I knew that I had fallen in “lust” with this machine. I reminded myself that nothing external could ever bring me happiness, because happiness is an inside job. I also knew that asking for this car would put undue pressure on my husband who just retired.
And so, with a sigh of relief, I made a commitment to God and to myself never to bring the car up in conversation again. It was time to let go and create time and space to be in awe of things that really matter. So in peace, I let it go.
