It's mid-morning on Black Friday, and I'm not shopping.
I saw a quote on Facebook earlier this week that went something like this: If you are not content now, nothing you buy this weekend will make you content.
Excellent point! It's not stuff that makes us content, it's who we are, what we are, liking ourselves, enjoying being the unique presence of life that each of us is. Nothing we buy can make that happen.
I must say that in an odd sort of way, I do appreciate others supporting the economy with their Black Friday efforts. If the gross national product depended on my shopping efforts, we'd be in BIG trouble.
I hope you enjoy your day, no matter what it holds for you!
