Made you look! So that heading appealed to you? Consumerism does exactly the same thing. It appeals to us and promises the world at our feet. Rarely is the focus on the product itself but more with the lifestyle being portrayed. If only we drove that car wearing those sunglasses we would be happy complete with brilliant white teeth.
In fact we need very little. I punctuated the usual post work routine of watch whatever is on TV with a trip into the garden. The cat immediately greeted me as I sat down. Almost saying “Finally you’re here, isn’t it great?” For just a few moments I just sat, feeling the warmth of the spring sun here in the UK and watching a bee visit some purple flowers. The flowers were in fact weeds but who am I to judge? I didn’t think about how tired the garden furniture looked or jobs that needed doing. I just be.
No flashy car. No flashy sunglasses. We don’t need much to enjoy a moment do we? So the offer is free and exclusive to you – to enjoy a moment free of distractions.
Have a brilliant day,
