i am in need of a new broom.
i really like this one.
my friend thinks i’m funny that I won’t go to target to buy a new one.
but the truth of the matter is i like pretty things and i can’t find one at target that i like.
i know, i know it’s a broom for goodness sakes.
but more than ever i am wanting to take the time to think about my purchases and buy things that are well made and that I really love.
even if it means that I have to save up for something as practical as a broom.
this may all seem a bit complicated for some but for me it seems to simplify things.
it has been my mantra for some time to “surround myself with what i truly love”
and yes this means so much more than just stuff.
but I want to love my things too.
and you know what? I have actually been buying less since really trying to stick with my mantra.
asking myself “do I absolutely LOVE this? Will this bring me joy? Do I really need this? has helped me put many a thing back on the shelf and think about stuff in general.
but a broom?
well that is something I definitely cannot live without
and yes it will bring me joy each time I sweep up a pile of dirt because
gosh darn it i’m gonna love my broom!
