Imagine this, you come home from a wonderful family vacation where you have been refreshed and energized, making memories with loved ones, and as you pull up to your driveway you see that your home has been the victim of a fire, causing all of your possessions to be destroyed.  After you have been able to process the trauma of the fire, what are you most upset about losing?  Are those 35 tupperware containers that barely fit in the cupboard among your most treasured things?  I hope that nobody ever experiences the pain of a house fire, and I don’t use the example lightly, but rather to shed light on the disproportionate amount of emphasis we place on “stuff”.

Running Stride

Finding Your Stride

Running Stride

I was out for a run the other day and I just couldn’t seem to find my stride. I was visiting family so my route was on new terrain, I was wearing borrowed earbuds that refused to stay put and to top it all off, it was raining. I’ve been running long enough that running in the rain isn’t a huge deterrent, but it certainly doesn’t make for as pleasurable of a run. About halfway through the run I gave up on the earbuds and stuffed them into my pocket, deciding instead to let my heavy breathing and the splashing of the rain be my music (doesn’t quite have the oomph of my dance mix but it is more peaceful). I was trying to stay positive but was fighting thoughts like “I should have stayed in” and “this is going to be a poor run”. I was rounding the corner to turn back to my parents house when I saw another woman running towards me, just as soaked as I was at that point. She was on the opposite side of the road but as we approached each other I checked for cars and crossed towards her. I gave her a high five and said “way to go! Keep running!” and she smiled, high-fived back and said “you too!”. I finished my run with a smile on my face and it left a great impression on my soul as well.

We live in a world of extremes that wants to categorize things into “good” or “bad” but buying things isn’t the issue here. The questions behind the purchases are what matter—the what, how much, and, more importantly, why are we buying things. Here are 5 pre-purchase questions to help you live a simpler lifestyle.
