Ok, I’m using more of my stuff more regularly. Reading my books, making scrap-cards for my mother, writing some, house looks a little better more often, have my clothes in a in and out to donate cycle, feel more satisfied with my rental and feel more at peace that I don’t need to buy a place yet when I don’t know for sure where I want to ‘be’, and horses are getting groomed weekly now. Step 2 carries over to provide more entertainment for my little border collie, focus on my savings routine for the next two months, and finish my garden. Stop window shopping. Organize my stuff more compactly. It’s all got a ‘place’ but I can minimize some of it. This is a ‘Thing’ that is close to completion, it’s more of a feeling and integrating more recreational routine into my lifestyle. I’m succeeding in retaining the feeling, I just want to adjust my lifestyle a little. Very pleased with the progress. 3 years ago
Hehehe.. steps to satisfaction- ok, I thought it was funny :-)
Anyway: step 1 is spend more time USING what I have: grooming and riding my horse, use the scrapbooking and painting kits my charming hubby gave me, keep my (rented)home clean, realize i don’t need to rush into buying a home, read my millions of books, plan before i go clothes shopping (donate stuff i don’t wear so it doesn’t take up space… i’ve actually been doing this for some time), and take my bored little dog out for more hikes! Step 2 to come once i’m happy with step 1. 4 years ago
Our world encourages ‘stuffitis’ and greed. I want to move away from that and learn to be happy with what I have and the gifts I’ve been given. 4 years ago
I have an incredibly blessed life, I love my job, my house, my boyfriend, my friends… Everything is perfect or falling into place. I feel like I am appreciative of the things I have but I seem to fall into the trap of comparing myself to others, or thinking that it’s not good enough.
I think I need to focus on being happy here, and knowing that I am on my way to getting where I want to go. 6 years ago
I am satisfied. There are useful things that I want, but that doesn’t mean I’m not satisfied.
I’m poor, I struggle every day to keep my head above water. But I’m going to school, I’m keeping my body and mind in shape, and I’m surrounded by people that care for me.
I’m taking this off of my list. Good luck, everyone! 6 years ago
