When I buy

Saturday, November 29, 2008

Humorous Pictures

Finish this sentence with the first words that come into your mind:

When I buy things that I don't really need,
it's usually because _____________.


If you like what you just said... that's great! If what you just said shows you something uncomfortable about yourself that you'd like to change, now is the time to take steps to make some changes. Start first with that thought, how can you rewrite the sentence in a more positive way, and still make it sound and feel true for you?

Remember, if you rewrite the sentence to be how you "wish" it was, or how you think it "should" be, or even how you "want" it to be, it will not have nearly the effectiveness as it will if you can rewrite it in such a way that you KNOW the truth of it.

When you have your alternative sentence firmly fixed in your mind, it will begin to operate automatically in your life, filtering out experiences and ideas that do NOT reflect that positive statement.

As always, we all love to see what other people write - so log on and share. Something you say might be really helpful to those of us who read it.

When I buy things I don't really need, it's usually because someone else needs them. Or it would make their life better or easier. I'm really a sparse shopper when it comes to me but boy, can I do some damage if it's a gift! I need to make and create more gving things rather than spend.

When I buy things I don't really need it is usually because I want to feel empowered. It is about entitlement to things, freedom to choose and have, anger at having limitations on pleasure, stuckedness, chronic fear of lack and poverty.Sometimes I've done it to scare myself, push my limits.

When I buy something I don't really need it is to give myself pleasure.

I love buying things I don't really need.

When i buy things i don't really need, it's usually because I really think i need them.

So, let's see, who would i see this with a new perspective...

When i buy things that i don't really need, I love them! Then, they either stay with me or come into the place that they're needed.

That's it, just love, i guess! :P

Ok... so... When I guy things I don't really need it's usually because I THINK I need them, and it's usually because I WANT them, and it's usually because I am feeling a need for comfort, or luxury, or love, or I'm just tired of saying "no" to myself or hearing "no" from the Master of the Univers, or it's because I'm tired and in a sort of fugue state and the COMMERCIALS or the PACKAGING MADE ME DO IT.

Here's a change up:

When I buy things I don't really need, it's usually because I am buying something for someone I love.

By the way guys, I loved what you said... Karla I like the "create more giving things" ... Delibes, I like the "to give myself pleasure" that was nice! ... and Mark, I like the "I love them" idea. If my home was filled with things that I didn't really need, but loved nonetheless - how cool that would be. Instead it's full of "stuff" and "junk" that I need to "get rid of" .... not things that I love, which give me pleasure, and which I feel comfortable and good about giving.

Thanks guys, you've got me thinking now.
