I bought nothing today
I resisted and succeeded. I bought nothing. Not even milk and we need it. Tomorrow I will need to head out to Costco for a big shopping trip, but today, nothing. I feel good about it. I wasn't even tempted. The thought of people getting up to be at a store by 4 am to shop, sounds like an absolute nightmare to me. Instead, I stayed home and enjoyed time with my family. A day off, just the way I like it. I want to invite you to consider the idea of living by The Compact. I do not follow it completely, but I do try and strive for this idea of only buying what we need. What better way to try and heal what damage our earth has already been dealt, and to stop any further damage we could do.
