I wanted to buy a lot of things today.
Among all the things I gawked at, these three were what I wanted to get for myself the most.
1. The Quiksilver Rambler Zip Up Sweatshirt.
2. A pair of suede DC Standard or TX shoes
3. Nike Cheyenne Pursuit 2.0 in Navy
Aside from that, I want to buy ballet flats, and I have an HTC One X pipe dream.
I basically spent the entire afternoon window shopping and thinking of stuff to buy.
At the end of the day, I thought “what a sad way to spend an afternoon”.
Don’t get me wrong, I love getting and wearing cool new things as much as any other hot-blooded corporate person who earns her own money, but if I were to spend $300 on these three items in a day…
would I really be happy?
I guess I just needed to ask myself that.
Primarily, because I need that thought to save money haha.
If I didn’t second-guess myself, I’d run myself into the ground with poverty and debt.
My mental shopping spree just really got me thinking.
What happens after I get those three things? Or if I even buy an additional set of ballet flats I wanted, or the 2 Billabong watches I like, or a surfboard, or an HTC One X?
There’ll just be new bags, new shoes, new sweaters to find cool, right?
I need something to fill my life.
Fulfilling work. Purpose. Dedication to something greater than me.
