Today I went shopping for myself, for the first time in three months. Remember I went on shopping “fast”. Well today I broke it and its ok. I needed to get a few new pieces of business attire and new boots as my current ones were old, ripping or just didn’t look professional anymore. Well, today I went shopping with my mom and grandma. I was able to find everything on my list in a fairly quick amount of time and walked out spending alot less than expected due to some awesome deals. I have realized I do like shopping but only when there are things I need. I don’t feel guilty for spending my money and I actually feel grateful for the money that I have saved to be able to buy these new things. I feel grateful for the work I am able to do and for the ability and patience to save my money. I also am much quicker and very specific to buy what I know I need or will wear. I am grateful for the clothes that I am blessed with because I have different options and choices and I have clothes that’ll keep me warm and modest during the year. Especially since serving the homeless, and realizing they don’t always have what they need, it makes thankful for what I do have. It makes me grateful that I do have. When I find something in my closet or drawers that I am not wearing I try to take it to the people out on the streets. It brings a smile to my face when I am able to give a cold woman out on the streets a warm jacket. It makes her smile. It makes me smile. Being able to give away something that I am not using, it makes it seem more purposeful. Yay clothes, service, smile!
