"Live with less. Instead of spending a little on a lot, spend more on the things you really need. Check your labels. Know your sources. Try to connect with the makers behind your purchases, whether they be a clothing designer, a jeweler, or a farmer. And, most importantly, wait. Time, and patience especially, seems to be integral to mindful living. "
Beautifully written piece about the value of #handmade
with the people behind the things you buy.
I think in our society, we have come to expect quick and cheap. How much easier is it to order something on Amazon rather than making the trip out to your local store? Or buying a cheap t-shirt at the mall and throwing it away after it falls apart after a year rather than saving up to buy something that was made better, but more expensive? I know I am guilty of this too, but it something I am striving
to be more mindful about.
