|things in my mind in the shower this morning.

..drifting thoughts about personal goals, long and short term and their underlying motivations.. the urges to be famous/beautiful/sexy/rich/talented.. the motivations to me are basically all the same desire to validate myself, to give reason to my existance. it isn't enough for the rest of humanity to want me back. even just trying to be content with myself does not satisfy the need. ... but the best overall life principle i've found is to be content with the way i live, satisfied with myself. right now, this means caring for and loving the people in my life. i haven't been very good at that.
about consumerism.. whatever products/goods we obtain and don't use, we waste. also, whatever we use that is intended to be appreciated but is not appreciated because we take it for granted, that is wasted as well.
