Do you ever get that feeling, like, I want to buy something… Even as a minimalist I sometimes get a feeling like this.
Last week I made the decision to change my Cable TV / Internet Provider from Dish Network to Comcast Xfinity. I was able to lock in on a 2 year package that will save me almost $40.00 per month while providing faster internet and a wide range of channels that we would actually watch. Anyway, in doing this I made the decision to purchase my own Cable Internet Box with built in wireless router that would save me an additional $10.00 per month on rental fee’s.
Just making that single purchase through Amazon.com seemed to stir something inside me to buy more stuff. The problem is that there is nothing I want or need to buy. Still I find myself looking at ads on the internet. Why is this? It is almost like I have scored an incredible deal on this whole home entertainment/communications switch over and all of a sudden I am the King of finding a good deal and somewhere in the recesses of my brain I want another score.
No worries though as I haven’t made another purchase and am glad I caught myself before I starting buying more shit that I don’t need. It makes me wonder about past habits and some of the crap I allowed to enter my home through this very act of allowing myself to feel some kind of thrill from buying stuff.

After stepping up the weights on Tuesday I found myself needing a day off on Wednesday. Here I arrive on Thursday to embrace walking on the treadmill. I built up quite a sweat and really feel that I will benefit from the walk this morning. It does take time and patients to allow all of the mini steps in progress each day to finally allow the body to anticipate the next workout. For now I am still reluctantly pushing myself each day. Just a little bit more, just a little harder.
