My friends, I have lovely news. My friends, I have embarrassing news.
I HAVE literally been obsessed/consumed with trying to find the "perfect, great deal" of a stroller. WHY? There are several reasons that I could go on and on about, but I will not. I won't do this because I'm completely embarrassed by my behavior. Obsessing over something materialistic is NOT a good thing. THINGS don't matter. I wasted two precious days glancing at the internet every time I got a chance, when I could have been doing other things......chores in my home, making an art project with my two year old.....whatever.
Please, don't waste your thoughts on "things"..they don't matter, they don't make us better people, they don't bring us lifelong happiness.
My lovely news is this, I called two friends today. I asked the first friend to be on the lookout for me a used stroller to purchase (she owns a Stroller Fit franchise), I then called another friend and asked her if she possibly had an old jogging stroller (she has four kids and loves working out) AND SHE DID!!!!! Woo Hoo, best part is........she GAVE it to me and it was FREE and it works just fine and dandy (it sort of pulls to the left, but that's beside the point..he he).
The stroller is "shabby chic", and I appreciate it very much. I will use my "well-loved" stroller and if a great deal comes along that I just can't pass up, I will get a new one. End of story. No more obsessing though. Until then, we will take our family walks/runs/bike rides and enjoy every second of it.
What is it that you tend to obsess over? Is it consuming your days and your thoughts?
