Blogspiration 36: Inner Peace

Blogspiration is a weekly meme hosted by GrowingUp YA & Saz101. The meme was created to help spark inspiration among bloggers, readers & writers alike. An inspirational quote/picture/video is posted weekly, on the day of the author’s choosing, so that it may inspire creativity, conversation & just a little SOMETHING.



So many people try to achieve happiness in their lives by buying the latest tech gadgets.  While there is nothing inherently wrong with consuming things, there is something wrong with the idea that you can fill the empty spaces in your life with more stuff that you don't need.

That's why the quote below resonates with me.

Contentment comes from being okay with who you are.  Until you achieve that inner peace, you'll never feel satisfied.

  1. LG, that couldn't be any truer! That's also why we can't love others until we love ourselves.

  2. I think one problem with consumerism is that it does not cause us to develop any of our most important talents and abilities, unless we number our shopping skills among our most important talents. But I think shopping must pale in comparison to, say, developing our writing skills, or musical skills, intellectual talents, athletic skills, compassion, and so forth.

  4. I agree with Alex, to gain respect from others one has to respect themselves. I have read this many times in the self help books I bought after my berevements.
