contentment

July 15th, 2010 at 09:57 pm

I've settled into a very mellow rhythm the past few months, buying used things instead of new. It's more than a money-saving strategy to me; it's a philosophy. It's about contentment for myself, confidence in myself, and respect for the environment.

I felt odd walking through the mall yesterday, to pick up the present that everyone voted to get for my boss. New things have taken on an aura of disappointment and sadness and insecurity. I notice it more and more lately. Maybe it's a little strange. I came home from the mall feeling inadequate for the first time in months.

Old things have an aura of authenticity and contentment and patience and respect; I like to surround myself with those feelings.
