I like beautiful things as much as the next person, but I also find the ongoing pursuit of material items to be an exhausting hamster wheel. I'm really trying to impart this message to my kids--to be happy and enjoy what we have instead of looking to the next thing and dopamine hit. I honestly internally cringe when I see social media people posting all of their new items/purchases. I feel the same way about celebs starting lifestyle/clothing brands. How are very affluent people still shilling landfill in today's world?
