There is a lot to be said for being mindful these days. There are numerous apps to download onto your smart phone to assist with the process of mindful meditation. Instead of walking for cardio health we can mindfully walk by noticing how the foot grips the earth, looking up at the trees, noticing the bird song and get the cardio health!
The mindful shopper takes some time to think about how she will part with her money.
She has a plan. She works to a budget and more often than not, she sticks to it.
This woman embraces the experience of trying on clothes. She knows her time is precious. Her family and friends are high on her priority list. She gives herself the time to indulge in the feminine experience of shopping when she needs it. She delights in the quality and texture of the fabric on her skin. She embraces a beautiful cut that flatters the curves on her body. She likes to do this alone, or with a girlfriend. Sometimes she loves her partner to be there with her. My experience is that he loves to be there for her, supporting her, enjoying the process.
This is an ‘experience’ for her. She knows she is worth it. She understands that she can’t give what she does not have and in order to be available to the important people in her life she needs to fit her own oxygen mask first. She seeks advice from those who know more about this than she does. She is demanding and insists that her investment is going to reap a good return. She understands the cost per wear formula. She actually spends less than her mindless shopping colleague.
It’s a special experience for her inner being. She embraces it and returns to her family renewed and satisfied. I’ve been privileged to witness this. I’ve received the emails and texts from her partner expressing gratitude. It’s a beautiful thing.
Three cheers to the mindful shopper today! Is this YOU?
