Mid-week and I feel close to freedom, sometimes I feel like Henry David Thoreau when he said “Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends... Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.” Finding the meaning of life is hard when you’re forced to step out of your comfort zone constantly or when your life is surrounded by distress. This quote helps me understand one thing; we do not need to waste our lives in search of something we might already have. Say, at time we might feel lonely because what, we only have five friends. When in reality we should be feeling blessed, not all humans have the privilege of calling someone a best friend. Like Dock from Tombstone he placed he’s own life on the line for his friend, and yes it’s a movie but sometimes we feel this way when it comes to our family, our Lovers, and our close friends. So the lesson learned is cherish that one unconditional someone. I personally had a problem with new things, about three years ago; I mean I couldn’t go to a drugstore without purchasing 4-5 make-up items! And most of the things I bought I never used! But all this unwise spending came to an end, and that was a brilliant day, I realized that I didn’t really need all these things, so I started focusing on things that had special meaning to me,. By doing this I kept my own thoughts and believes about society and its influence on me. No matter what new café I visit downtown or what amazing concert I view, the most amazing view is a lovely sunset and the sound of water splashing against rocks, or the smell of wood on a foggy day_ enjoy life… I know, I know this post was a bit long, but I just had to share this….
