I have been cataloguing simple joys that make me happy, or at least happier, like daily yoga, eating well at home, early mornings, a husband’s gift and a nicer backyard. However, all those little things are just not enough when you go through life’s inevitable crisis. At least they don’t seem enough at this moment. I wish I could be one of those people who truly only need the simpler things in life. Right now, I want anything by Missoni, a Foley + Corinna handbag, a J. Crew cashmere sweater, plane tickets to Barcelona and lots of STUFF. STUFF that show others (and myself) that all my hard work is worth it, that I have extra money to spend on frivolous things and don’t have to worry about bills and cut coupons.
Update: I went shopping but ended up buying nothing. I didn’t want to buy just for the sake of buying. Even the J. Crew online sale did not entice me. After some thought, I guess I realized again that shopping isn’t a solution.
