when I was in my teens..I used To be so crazy about the latest trends,beauty and be popular and show off etc etc..I have to admit the scene was the same even till my thirties I also was part of groups I couldn’t gel,I was doing things which didn’t align with my liking.. However.. it brought me nothing but stress and lots it. I feel i have changed a lot.I rarely go to beauty parlors coz I don’t feel that’s a dire need and I can groom myself at home.I even use only eyebrow remover pen to clear up.. With dressing..I very rarely buy unless it’s a need.I have clothes even though years old And I still use it. Even for home..only the basics I buy. Whatever is needed. Vacations..no more bucket list.I really don’t want to visit those exotic places.I just want warm beaches or the mountains.Me and hubby are like that. maybe one greed I still have (visit Italy to taste their pasta and pizza..to all the friends who have visited Italy..is it super super tasty?) Anyways...don’t get me wrong..am No kanjoos but I feel I am not into consumerism anymore. Just lost interest. Am only 43..if that’s not too old In my last job whatever I earned..half off it I gave it to some trust and remaining some Savings and it is still in the bank. My only dream is to go back to my hometown back in India..live there in sunshine and visit temples.The kodai hills which always touches my soul..want to keep visiting that.Basic food and simple life.. I only stress myself to have bigger dreams now..but I just don’t have any more Ambitions anymore..I don’t have it in me anymore. I am a lot into minimalism for the past couple years and maybe this mindset..I don’t know.. why this thread.. just jotting randomly how I feel. a casual thread..
