She may not be sparkling new, she may have rust, she may have miles, but she's well taken care of.
She was bought with many long hours, many times away from my family working overtime. I even still owe on her.
She actually is my dream truck. Black Dodge Ram, Crew Cab, 5.7 Liter Hemi. I grew up in a big Mopar family.
I also grew up to always take care of what you have, even if it has rust, holes, torn, disheveled, or is on its last leg.
Because you value those things not because they're not shiny, and new. You value them because you need to learn that tangible possessions, and monetary value will never outweigh the ability to live life with the bare essentials, should you ever have to be in that position.
It doesn't make you any less of a person. It doesn't make you any better of a person. It just makes you a person.
You never know what might happen, when you might have to make $5 last for two weeks. Or your clothes, shoes, jeans, and other life necessities last for six or more years.
So just remember, even if it's not shiny, and new. It most likely holds more value than you see.
Just look closer.
"There’s a fluid, sensual quality to my work. The forms want to be touched, to feel the body against them. Jewelry provides a directive for that interaction. The wearer intuitively understands they’re meant to bring the object to their body." — Leila Du Mond of @cyril.studio for #marenjournal // link in bio// photo by @viktorjelinek + @norajelinek
My minimal dreams came true and I had the best time capturing these images with @crisycris24 👯 The city makes me happy. We even tried sitting on the edge of the Walt Disney Concert Hall without getting caught on camera 🎥😳 All fun and safe though ☺️ I’m ready to tackle the coming week with vibrant energy✨✨✨✨ Cheers everyone! #inspiremyfancy#inspiremyfancy#minimalist#stylefiles
If you know me well, you know @theminimalists have completely changed my life. This week my husband and I are moving out of our 3 bedroom house and into a 1 bedroom apartment (scary, I know!) Through this process of downsizing I have learned what’s really important and it’s not “stuff.” We are so excited for this next chapter in life and for all the freedom it will bring!
