to what extent do you need to change your experiences to experience contentment with life? lately, I feel like I seclude myself to the outside world a lot. The world is a rough and rocky place, and it is nice and quiet in my home. but sometimes I feel like it is too routine so me and my friend visited an antique shop Saturday and I saw the loveliest things. I saw a toy baby grand piano. I always wanted a baby grand, and this might’ve been my second to last chance were it not for the wobbly leg. Besides, it wasn’t wooden and I like the wooden music boxes the mostest. they smell like home, like a tree. I saw a vintage doll buggy with no doll, and I found that rather sad. me and my soul friend got lost in the place for the better part of an hour, and when we would talk it was in a hushed whisper as if we were in a sacred place, like a library.
did you know that the Beatles john and Paul tried to experience something different every day? they were very attentive to their environment and to experiencing new places and people. they found it as the source for inspiration.

    I have spent more than an hour in an antique shop…I could live in one…
    Every object/item is a piece of history and tells a story. An antique shop is like a museum where you can buy the exhibits. We have an antique mall called the Brass Armadillo which is huge and has every thing one could image…but some of the stuff they have are NOT antiques. A true antique store has an atmosphere to it, a unique aroma in the air, of old things from a time gone by. Perhaps the reason I love antiques, is because I am an antique too…an ancient one at that.

    I know, this doesn’t answer your original question…

      @immortal_pirate thank you for sharing! I can remember being a little girl, and disliking going into antique shops with my parents, but now it is one of my favorite things to do. Love everything vintage!

    The world is only rough and rocky if you accept that it is.

    It’s a wonderful and smoothly peaceful place. That’s what I choose to see.

    I am nearly two months sober, and going to therapy and such. I feel great. I finally hit “rock bottom”, so quitting booze and cough syrup has been easy. I go to AA everyday, right now, which vastly has been improving my life.

    I am not poor in mind, but I am definitely poor in spirit, so it does not take much for me to change my environment, that is, to make it a big deal.

    I shift between my place and my sister’s place… I take walks to the store, various ones… otherwise, I try and remain active online, where most of my few friends are…

    I believe in being happy, which I strive to maintain: peace & joy.

    Wherever I am, there it is, so not a whole lot of reason to go out and do stuff.

    But, do not have a car, currently…

    I don’t make changes to my environment because I created the life and environment I love living in. We go out on adventures and return to our home when we tire of the adventures. We go to an antique shop called the Brass Armadillo and can spend hours in there. Each item has a story and I am surprised by some things I used to own things like them. We talk in normal voices and if we find something that makes noise, we make noise. We ring the bells and honk the horns. We know that the place has cameras all over the shop.
    In California — there was an antique shop in Whittier that took 3 or 4 hours to walk through. I loved that place!!!
    Immortal Pirate and I go to parties, dinner parties, festivals, and anything that looks like it would be fun. Sometimes we go “Awe and Oooooh” shopping, where we might not buy anything, but look and say, “Awe and Oooooh!”.
