The Best Things in Life aren’t Things.

There’s so much to say about this topic, its a little frustrating. I hate it so much!

Hm Okay well…I shouldn’t say hate, more like I really dislike it, the word, it, everything about its definition of IT. It’s something that a lot of people love….. more than themselves and thats a little frustrating… and sad.

I have never really understood it.

The need for people to buy the most expensive thing, to look their very best with what they believe is “the very best” is just something I don’t believe in. I have never though that having a lot of expensive things was important, and I wish people could agree with me.

I believe that for you to feel your very best, you have to start searching within, if you feel your best, you don’t have to worry about getting that satisfaction from, let’s say, an Iphone, or some brand named outfit. I think that when you start relying on the outside for satisfaction, you’re never going to feel satisfied, and you’re always going to want more, and more, and so on.


It’s like when you go on social media, you just feel unsatisfied because someone else online is making you want to experience a situation they’re going through, like traveling somewhere exotic, or buying something expensive.

That sort of thing…

I never really understood the purpose of it, the need to really have a lot of things, specially brand names. 


I am not going to sit here and pretend like I don’t have an Iphone, or an Ipad, but I HAVE noticed that a lot of conversations are becoming so meaningless, and so superficial, topics are now about clothes, where a product was bought, “I love your makeup”, or even other people’s lives, etc.

Its now all about, I’m getting this, that, I spent this amount somewhere, did you hear what happened to this person? blah, blah, blah,…at least that’s what I’m getting.

“bullshit, bullshit, bullshit.”

You were literally born bare, with absolutely nothing, you had no idea about anything, and you will die, maybe not bare, but your things aren’t going with you, you do know that right?…

And even having a conversation about someone who doesn’t even know you’re alive.

If you were to die right now, will what you wear matter? Will a celebrity matter in your life?

Will you worry about how many followers you want?

What will you want people to talk about after you die?

I have never been a person interested in material things, or wearing a lot of makeup, showing off, wanting to look good all the time, although sometimes I enjoy it (I’m not going to lie.), I don’t constantly crave it, really, I’m satisfied with my hair up and PJs.

It’s too much unnecessary work anyway.

If you’re someone that appreciate’s low-key environments, hanging out without getting stupid drunk or around loud music… seriously, let’s be friends.

I went to the mall recently, after 2 years I think… It was ridiculous, I felt like I was there with a new set of eyes, Ive gone to the mall before, but this was really different, I felt a little disgusted by so many things that the companies were selling and the conversations I kept hearing

SO OVERWHELMING! I don’t want to go to the mall anymore.

On the topic of consumption:

Have you ever stopped and wondered why is it that you never have any money? 

These companies sell you product that make you believe your not pretty, smart, or even good enough if you don’t have them, do you usually wonder if you really need that item? Like If something were to happen to you, something bad, and you had to pick some material thing, idk, whatever you’d like, I don’t know!! (for legal issues, I’d rather generalized my brands…)… would you really buy whatever that item is? I don’t think so.

“If you have to brag about the all of the material things in your life, there probably isn’t much else to it.”

I don’t even have to say anything about gossiping, it’s pretty self explanatory.

  2. Look at memories. Will they be ‘the time I bought/wore that outfit’ or will they be ‘that amazing day out with my family when we came home to find stray sheep in the garden’? Experiences are what we cherish when we look back. We should learn to enjoy the moment more as it happens. Think of who we’re enjoying it with, not how many people we’re ‘sharing’ it with.
