Day 263: Swap, Swap, Swap
“Patience protects us from being discouraged.” -The Dalai Lama
Well, that makes sense. I mean…think about it. If I choose to loose my patience, what happens? I lose my peace. So then, what is the obvious choice? Calm the heck down. Just remain calm. Relax. I mean, honestly. What’s the worst that could happen? After a few years or so, you’ll look back at things a LOT differently than you do now. Believe me.
Life is best when one is not worried about the past or the future, but just focused on right now, with patience. That’s when peace comes.
Today, I went to a clothing swap. Oh My God. Can you believe that when I got there at around 12 something, there was a line around the block?! Yes. The one thing I love about living in New York, is the swaps. Truly, you do not have to shop for clothing when you live in New York City.
It was a little hot, and a little discombobulated, if you ask me. But SO worth it.
Yes. Very, very crowded.
I got A LOT of cool stuff! While I was putting back my box of books, I saw it. It was like an angel set aside this ginormous stack of crafting books just for me.
I got like, 15 new craft books, that are BRAND NEW! I think they must have been given by a person who either works for a literary agent, or a publishing house. OMG OMG. I got knitting books, a crochet book, paper crafting books….woah nelly.
