I think one virtue of moving between countries is an appreciation for little tokens and memories. Small, easily-packed but vital objects are much more fulfilling to me now, compared to when I was steadily growing an apartment full of knickknacks and miscellany. Don't get me wrong: I still live in a very cluttered home and I could certainly do with a good clear-out of my closet. But I am much better at saying 'I don't need that.' Not perfect, but improving.
