(Here is another fantastic post from our guest blogger: Nikita Rishton)
We are always told we need the next new phone; pair of trainers, car, and every other new invention that will make our lives perfect!
We are surrounded by advertisements wherever we look, telling us what we need in our lives. There is a gadget for everything, even ones we didn’t know we needed. Call me old fashioned but I thought we just used our hands to turn on lights!
It is easy to get possessed by our possessions and become obsessed by getting the next best thing. We can get trapped in this cycle of wanting something, getting it, then the next moment there is a newer version we are told we need.
We are constantly trying to keep up, but it’s never going to end. This is why we need to think about, and evaluate our possessions.
When we strip everything back and think about what is truly important to us, the things with the greatest value are actually people, time, and ourselves!
Be happy with the real values in your life and don’t be consumed by consumerism.
