Shopping is not just fun, to have nice things, or the necessary right that it is. Shopping is a duty for me. I sacrifice myself for shopping, and not just by blowing cash (but that’s a hu.uge part).
I shop for my blog, it keeps me continuously gaining knowledge, it shows me products and many ideas. The shopping improves the economy (I think I do enough of it) and the blog, my friends, inspires others to shop, themselves. I am good for the country!
And I lose myself in shopping and in the blog. The blog inspires me to shop more. I have been evolving into a more sophisticated fashionista from the very beginning. Where do I end and where do the blog and malls begin?
And now I must shop more, my friends—I honestly must. I have a slight weight issue, but even at its slightness, I struggle to get and remain fit. I have been a computer person for too long—from just before my weight gain occurred, and I must retrain my body and mind to enjoy other activities more. Shopping is walking (oh, how boring old fashioned walking is!). Yes, there are other exercises, but you probably have heard that a lifestyle must be maintainable for weight to remain off of the body. I must enjoy a more active lifestyle on a regular basis. So no … I shop to be healthy (and I don’t always buy! … much).
This does mean that I sacrifice the blog for my own well being. But this is good. I want to live a healthy life, and most people agree that health and happiness are most important. I want to live a long life with doing work I enjoy, so a little sacrifice and less posting now will help me. In time, I will control a hearty balance of activity and sitting work. What I’ve done so far has been great, and I’m learning more and more how to juggle (and yet I still sleep!).
Things will get even better as time goes on, oh yes. For soon, I will be shopping for a new laptop—a light one!—and new, fancy go-anywhere Internet! Ah, to be on-the-go and to be able to stop on a dime and type! (I might have to start seriously saving first, though, hmmmm.)
