There may be hope after all

Came across this article earlier. I said to myself, hey, whatever will help. I thought it was good. The tips may not be the first things that come to mind, but I thought it was worth exploring. Maybe one of these days...

Meanwhile, as I wasn't working today, I thought I'd visit my usual haunt. I've even referred to this place as my second home. People close to me knows exactly which one I'm referring to, sad but true. As I walked in, I'm pretty sure I was holding my breath a little, having said a little prayer, "Please do not let me find anything". I know, I know, silly, right? But I've lost count of the number of times I've gone through that experience of walking in to a store, thinking that I was just browsing, and next thing you know, I have an item, or two, or three, in my hand that I've convinced myself I cannot live without, nuts, I tell ya!!!

But today, I must say, I walked in, did my usual round, and, drumroll please, came out with nothing!!! Yes!!! Tried a few pair of shoes here and there. Quickly glanced around the clothes area, and the bag area, and the jewelry area, and walked out of that store shortly after. Even went to the adjacent mall, and again, looked around then walked out. Whew!

In 2 days, it'll be 1 month that I haven't shopped for shoes, 10 days shy of a month since I shopped for clothes. Hey, one of these days, I may even set a longer time to shoot for, just to give myself a goal. But, for now, I'll settle for baby steps... So, there may be hope after all... hehehe
