I don't know about the rest of you but I had a fan-fucking-tastic weekend. I worked Saturday morning and then spent the day getting ice cream with Krista and her beautiful daughter Aly. Then I spent the rest of the day shopping with Christy and getting high while getting ready to go to karaoke. Then on Sunday I slept in until about noon then got up went and picked Christy up and then we headed to downtown Calgary for the Lilac Festival. SO MUCH FUN!! We had Kim Anh for lunch (best Vietnamese subs I've ever had) and then wandered around for the next four hours just checking out all the awesome shit at the random booths. I spent a small fortune in just 48 hours but I do not regret it at all.
This is a list of everything I bought in 48 hours (food not included)
-1 AWESOME DRESS
-3 pkg of incense
- 2 bras
- 1 book
- 4 rings
- 1 kick ass tie dye hippie skirt *FUCK YEAH*
- 1 pair of earring (for a dollar WOOT)
- 2 scarves
Grand Total Spent... $261.18 CDN
I am super cool with that money being gone. Yes it puts me back quite a bit and yes I am aware of my upcoming legal costs but it was just nice to go out and buy a whole bunch of awesome shit. Frivolous spending is one of life's many joys. Yes I am aware that that statement is completely ridiculous from a consumers point of view. I know that I should be paying attention to where my money is going. If I just buy anything from anyone I am only helping the corporate giants seize control of the world. That is not the way it should be and it is definitely not sustainable. We as a species are single handedly killing the very earth we walk on and what happens to us as a result of that is our own damn fault.
I seem like a huge hypocrite right now.... but I am aware of the problem and am trying to adjust my habits to reflect my love for the earth. One day I will be a living example of that love!
I LOVE THE EARTH!!
I LOVE EVERY TREE, EVERY ROCK, EVERY ANIMAL!! (although... there are some arachnids and insects that I would rather love from a distance lol)
I LOVE THE SUN THAT SHINES DOWN ON ME
I LOVE THE FEELING OF THE BREEZE UPON MY CHEEK
I LOVE THE SOUND OF THE RIVER GENTLY FLOWING AND BUBBLING
I LOVE THE SMELL OF THE RAIN FALLING UPON THE GRASS
I LOVE THE INFINITE POSSIBILITIES THE EARTH CAN GIVE US...IF WE TAKE CARE OF IT!!
To end today's spaztastic post I would like to once again write out 10 things that I love about myself. Yes some of them may be repeats from Friday but it is still something that I believe would be extremely helpful to those of us who are struggling with self confidence and self love issues. Eventually if you tell yourself enough all of the fabulous wonderful things that you love about yourself you will start to believe them. There are few things more important in the world then each and every human being loving themselves.
