When you go home. Don't take your shoes off. Leave them ON and go walk on your carpet. It is MEANT to be used, abused, enjoyed, and--when the time comes-- REPLACED. IT is MEANT to enhance your life, not provide another stupid opportunity to "keep yourself in check."
Carpets are dispensable, disposable, replaceable. You, on the other hand, are NOT.
There is only one of you; there is not one person in this entire world who has the exact same iris of the eyes as you do; not one person who shares your fingerprint or your voice intonation. You are thoroughly, utterly and literally an unrepeatable miracle!!! Your living room is not a museum. YOU are a museum, harbouring, adorning, and nurturing the essence of YOU, your soul.
Don't ever sell yourself out for "stuff" that doesn't matter, or for people who don't offer you the respect you deserve. Not me. Not anyone. I won't say it again.
