Thought For The Day

Today’s quotes surround the subject always looking to acquire those “shiny new things” in life…

“Don’t get seduced by the next shiny thing, because you’ll get caught up chasing shiny things and that will keep you from addressing what you really need to accomplish.” (Joe Tripodi)

“I’m lucky having parents that have been in show business for a while and they don’t care about the shiny stuff so much. They raised me in that way – to stay grounded, not to chase the shiny pretty things. I stay in the moment, because when you do that, the hype goes away.” (Zoe Kravitz)

“A new car is not going to change your life…” (Monica Ali)

“Humans metabolize their purchases very quickly, even if it seemed worth it for any number of reasons when you first bought it. After some time passes, people will go back to feeling the baseline feelings they had previously felt about themselves, no matter how shiny the object, the hair, or the experience.” (Debbie Millman)

“There’s a lot of shiny, pretty objects out there that when you actually touch them, they just fall apart. And it’s like, you need to be authentic, you need to be yourself.” (John Rzeznik)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
