I want to have nice things
I know I mentioned earlier working on not being materialistic and devoting less time to thinking about “things”. On the grand scale I think I wouldn’t be considered terribly materialistic. Still, I want to free myself from that feeling of needing “things” as opposed to experience and feeling. But so far, the truth is, I want nice things. Nothing ridiculously lavish but not exactly what I can call humble. I still want a nice wardrobe where the average clothing item would probably be between $60-70 bucks. (see? not lavish but not humble). Okay, I’d like shoes and bags and watches that are probably way higher than that price range. I still want gorgeous non-Ikea furniture and shiny new appliances in my kitchen. I don’t want to think twice about the price of make up or beauty products if I truly think their worth it because I think I’m worth it. I was never that into jewelry but now I want to build a nice collection I’d be proud to hand down to my kids. I also want to give nice things. Lastly, I want the money to travel to places.
I still want to donate and help and change the world, but I have to admit that I want to have nice things.
