While it’s been rather en vogue to tout and “invest” in “experiences over things”, I wonder if this downplays the value of something even more meaningful than the experiences themselves — people:
Parents who support and guide us.
Partners who make those experiences worthwhile.
Siblings who understand us.
Children who give us drive and purpose.
Friends who cheer us on our life journey.
Colleagues who spend their days with us giving our own days substance.
All are so very meaningful.
