Hyper-consumerism is no longer the only way to live, as millions of people around the world prefer a different life where they buy new experiences instead of products.
Experiences may be better than mindless consumerism, but experiences are still desires, and reality is beyond the pursuit of all kinds of desire.
MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE
Stoics practiced ‘The Last Time’ meditation to experience life to the fullest. It is a mindset that makes us enjoy our experiences more.
“You have to understand that it is your attempt to get special experiences from life that makes you miss the actual experience of life. Life is not something you get; it’s something you experience.”
The pursuit of change is ingrained in us, as most of us want to change our clothes, car, house etc., just to attain something better.
We can have an alternative view about our present life, believing that change is optional and we are good and happy with how life is right now.
It is a good way to live in contentment with things we cannot change.
When you’re trying hard to experience something special in life, you’re actually chasing your desires without being aware of them.
The funny thing is when you try hard to get special experiences from life, you miss whatever is right in front of you.
That means every experience is worth it. Whether it’s something you desired or not.
Make yourself accountable for what you do or don’t do. You don’t have to do things to prove something to others.
Make a To-Do list with your goals, intentions and proposed actions, and try to stick to it.
