Since time immemorial, if anything has captured our imagination, it has been a good story. From fables to classic novels to crime thrillers to epic adventures, we’ve always been surrounded by stories. And it’s not just restricted to books alone. The movies and soaps we watch and even the news we read needs to have that “story” angle to it.
We all are storytellers.
Ever since the social media boom, all of us have become storytellers. The funny status update, the captivating video, the awesome photo album, or even a meme; everything we do on social media is in the effort of telling a good story. We crave attention, likes, shares, comments, and opinions, and all this comes from telling a good story.
And where does the content for good stories come from? From life experiences. Today, the value of life is not defined by the things we own, but by the experiences we can share. And the greater the experience, the better the story.
That’s why everything about us is changing. When we were growing up, we loved our annual vacations to Shimla or Kodaikanal. But now, thanks to the concept of a shared economy, where everything is easier and affordable, Bali, Maldives and backpacking trips around Europe call our name!
Experiences have come to define our generation, and while we’re focusing on experiences in every aspect of our lives, let’s not forget our homes.
Would you rather stay in a lovely rented pad in the “happening” part of the city or own a home somewhere far from the action? The former, right? Why? Because you’re in the thick of it and that means the potential to have as many experiences as possible which in turn translates into more stories.
What would you do?
So, when it comes to the furniture in your home, what would you do? Would you be okay with buying and paying hefty EMIs for something that starts depreciating from the time it enters your home? Or would you rather use that money on something that will enrich your life?
When you pit furniture against experiences, you will come to realise that the former will depreciate, the former will go out of style, the former can get damaged, and the former will fade away into ignorance.That will never happen with the latter. So, why ever buy, especially when you have the option to rent furniture.
This realization? It’s one of those things that once you’ve seen it, you just can’t un-see. Once you’ve seen it, it’s changed you for good. Or we hope so. So go on, take that money, and use it on something that will enrich your life. Then tell a story about it and enrich everyone else’s life around you.
