Start a Collection

When you were a kid, did you collect anything? Seashells? Stamps? Baseball cards? Barbie dolls?

Didn't it make you happy?

You'd take your collection out, and look at the items, maybe count them. See if you had "the whole set." Trade duplicates with fellow collectors.

Why not do it again?

I come from a long line of collectors. People in my family have collected bronze figurines, power tools, Toby mugs, classic cars, baseball caps, Pepsi memorabilia, car repair manuals, and road signs.

And that's just my dad.

My weakness... uhhhh... passion is books (a strange love for a man who has moved across the world three times). At one time I had National Geographic Magazines going back to before I was born (got 'em on disc now).

I still go visit my storage every time I'm back in L.A. just to say "hi" to my old friends.

So gather some things you love, one of every type or just a few mavericks. Enjoy them. Commune with them. Maybe even collect the whole set.

You’ll be happier.
