There is so much truth to this. I think the blogoshpere can sometimes be a somewhat materialistic place. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE blogging, my blogger friends, and it's no secret that I love clothes. I just think that sometimes there's a lot of pressure to "keep up" and to have all of the latest and greatest trends hanging in your closet. And it can be daunting.
The reality of it is, though, these things usually only give us temporary happiness. Experiences, friendships, and relationships are what give us a more permanent happiness. The likelihood of me looking back 20 years from now and thinking about how happy my clothes/jewelry/home furnishings made me is slim to none.
There are plenty of people out there that get by with much less than I do, and I would venture to say they are just as happy or happier than I am. I have no intentions of throwing in the towel and dressing like a bum, but I do think it's important to remember what really matters in life and to prioritize accordingly.
