Feeling the Urge to Splurge?

Feeling the Urge to Splurge?

Web version
Hi Friends,I love the fall. It’s a great time to reflect and energize on through toward dreams and desires. We all have our intuition, our goals, and our passion that come from within, and we have the external world we navigate though. As I take time to reflect, I am constantly reminded how good it feels to center around and keep coming back to my own circle of intention.
My personal intention is to connect and expand. I connect with myself so I can expand into the world. My intention is to help others connect with themselves so they can radiate out into the world with ease. I do this with Strala, with food, with collaborations, and with hugging people!
I’ve been catching up with some old friends lately, all doing different and interesting things in their lives and all experiencing a common peer pressure. The urge to splurge. The pressure to prove accomplishments through spending money on stuff to impress people. Icky! Don’t get sucked in and waste your energy.
Speaking personally, I don’t often have the urge to splurge, I think because my parents nailed me over the head with the purpose of saving and how all that stuff you buy in stores goes out of style the moment you buy it anyway. I’ve also loved my Mom’s vintage clothes from the 70s and been lucky enough to collaborate with Reebok and design pretty much everything I currently wear, so buying “stuff” isn’t necessary or desired.
I understand the urge, the pull, and the competition of proving success to a circle of people. Spending to impress irritates and deepens an incurable itch to spend and impress more, a race that has no purpose, no point, and no winner. Spending to impress leaves you empty feeling and empty pocketed. Saving your resources, your dollars, your energy, and your pride gains you power, control, choice, and stability. 
When you spend money on stuff to impress people that you have money, the store now has your money while your thing depreciates exponentially.
We Have So Much Already
If you are reading the internet you already have the luxury of time in your life to do so. You probably have a roof, clean water, enough food to eat, and clothes on your back. You are already in a position to help.
No matter what circle you run in, step outside of that circle and into your own circle. When you are in the middle of your own circle, you are in control of your life. You now have the space around you to cultivate your intention, your goals, and your desires. When you are in a circle with many, you are crowded and can get swept up in pressures to prove. You are so much more powerful than the pressure to prove. You can do great things in your life. You are meant to do great things in your life.
Form your own circle. Meditate. Practice yoga with ease. Listen to your intuition. Help others.
You have so much. You have to start believing in yourself. Head over to the blog to dive in the conversation in the comments.  
You Are Enough.
