They say that 'happiness is being satisfied with what you already have'... and so I have found a perfect cure for the ' I wannnaaa' syndrome that makes us all buy new things that would possibly meet the same fate as the things we already have - 'forgotten'. The cure is temporary... but it works:) Here it is:
Try taking pictures of the things you already have. That helps looking at them in a different way and reminds you why you got it in a first place. Sort of - fall back in love and realize how great what you already have is!
That's what I did this weekend:)

As I was walking through Target this weekend I became completely overwhelmed with wanting this and wanting that. There suddenly seemed to be SO many things I "needed". I left feeling horrible and then for the rest of the day felt horrible that I felt horrible because I couldn't but stuff. This post was perfect for me today. Thank you!

Dear bcre8uv... I might make a print out of it:)
Thank! I'm very glad you like it.

You're so right! And drawing the things I have is another way I get to appreciate them more too.
