I used to be a compulsive shopper. It was like employing whatever I had at hand. There’s TV, I will watch it. There’s a mountain, I will climb it. There’s rain, I will enjoy it. And in case I have money, I will spend it. :) And of course, soon (not soon enough) I realized that it is a problem. And I started employing (my word for the day :P) this “thought” I think I had read somewhere; or maybe someone had told me about it. That whenever you see something that you feel like spending money on, stop and think whether you want it, or you need it. Buy it, only if you really need it. And I must say that it has worked fabulously; this exercise.
And so in life. Practice discrimination between what you want, and what you need. Discard what/whom you don’t really want (to keep having in your life). It is taking up space, creating rot, and a lot of negative energy. Anyways, if you have been a good girl (or boy) the universe WILL give you what you (really) need… :)
I have to be up early tomorrow, to catch the morning show for this movie, and I am not able to sleep. I am so, so awake. Hope I am able to make it; I really want to watch this movie. Pray for me good souls. Pray that I am able to make it for this movie. I want to. I need to… :) ;)
