Lately, I’ve been feeling a sense of contentment like no other.
Have you felt this way before?
The feeling that all is well, life is good, there is no lack, all needs are met, and the world is a happy place?
It’s a good feeling, a fleeting feeling, but a feeling we should all embrace.
This feeling doesn’t happen for me very often, but so far in 2018 I’ve found myself living with the joy of pure contentment.
Have I been to thrift stores since the first of the year?
Have I had luck finding really great stuff?
(Oh those pewter Enzo wingtip brogues!)
Does the drive to treasure hunt consume my thoughts lately?
And that’s okay.
I’ve discovered that it’s good to take a break from thrifting to enjoy the things I’ve already found and collected.
It’s good to not want anything more than what I already own.
In fact, this winter I’ve worn many of the items I found in thrift stores last year. Scarves, tops, shoes, bags…so many treasures line the walls of my closet.
I am content, and I am grateful.
Take a moment to reflect on those things you have in your life right now, both material and not.
I bet you’ll discover a treasure trove of your own.
