Their lives mattered to their #sisters and #mothers he said. To remind me of my own #loss; but this did not give me #compassion for them. It made me hate the #ToySoldiers that they should demand #sorrow from a child.

Stuff - We live in a society where we are constantly reminded that we are not good enough. We are constantly being "told" that if we buy this product, look a certain way, then we are loved. ❀️ The system tells us that anything outside of you is valuable but when you truly realize that what is already within you is more than enough, you will stop striving and you will stop buying things so as to feel loved. . In my 20s, I went shopping so often because I was alone and depressed, that when I moved cities, I found clothes with their price tags still attached. I was shocked that I used shopping as a form of therapy. . I am not a minimalist. I have 5 sets of work clothes, I have 5 pairs of shoes and 2 pairs of jeans. Now, I buy new things/clothes when they break down. . When I feel the urge to consume, to buy a new pair of socks (I love socks!) or something new, I check in. "What emotions am I trying to hide? Why am I buying this even though I have the same kind of "thing" at home?" "Will buying this new socks, mug, shoes really make me feel loved?" - My belief with material things right now is "I came into this world naked, I'm leaving it naked. I can't take these things with me." If you have more than enough "things" and you are not using them, donate, give it to a friend whom you know are having a difficult time and share your abundance. πŸ™ . . . . . ##besoulinspirednow #mindbodysoul #truthteller #femtrepreneur #pondering #life #inspiration #karma #truthteller #storytelling #yvr #vancouver #health #gowiththeflow #gratitude #westcoast #awareness #light #wisdom #journey #adventure #happythursday #youareloved #youaremorethanenough #consumerism #bekindtooneanother #sharing #compassion

Things have become convoluted in society. Many of us have allowed the world to make us cold and closed minded. The more simply we can align our priorities and values, the easier life becomes. There's no need for the complexities and trivialities we all create out of pettyness and ego. Maybe it's time we listened to the youth more to remember who we really are deep down. | Follow ➑️ @themindopener.
