Superficial Gratification

So this week has been quite the upper!

I got a new DVD player, a new cell phone, AND a new car within the past 5 days. Plus I started the new job. Things seem to be going well. :)

It's quite sad that the events which made this week great were all incredibly superficial and money driven. That's not to say that I shouldn't be excited for these things; but I hope that I have the wherewithal to know that these things do not provide true happiness. Otherwise I will spend my life chasing the next high hoping to fill some void.

I am not looking at these things in a satiating way; I don't believe that they are ultimately going to lead to my happiness. Sure, they are fun and all, but my happiness has to come from within.

Okay, I'm going to stop before I begin to sound like one of those crazy life coaches who motivate you to be THE BEST YOU POSSIBLE! (for $39.99 a month and with the purchase of this AMAZING book...)

Peace out, foolios.
