Last year and the previous years,material items made me happy.My mom and I would go on outrageous shopping sprees,I would go to ULTA or Sephora and buy hundreds of dollars worth of make-up that I'd never wear,and buy drugstore brand mascaras that would eventually be thrown out only to never have been used.But now I don't wear make-up.
I LOVED designer handbags,and I would get a new one every single month and it would make me so happy and give me an adrenaline rush...
I'd buy like 10 pairs of shoes at a time and it was awesome.
But now,these things no longer make me happy:/ Which sucks,I guess I'm happy on my own,but it was nice while that little high lasted.
For my birthday I got the Flip video camera and the Clarisonic,but I wasn't excited about them...I don't know why.I'm supposed to get a Nook Color and Touchscreen digital camera for Christmas but I don't anticipate such things.It's just "whatever"
They no longer make me happy,nor do I anticipate compliments about them or the slight jealousy I'd see in other peoples eyes...weird but I can finally say "I don't need ____" I just want...but I also still want a lot.
Are you materialistic?Do material items make you happy?

No, and I never had 'nice things' in my life, and I never wished I had, (I'm not being hypocrite, I'm being honest).
In my country, millions of people don't have what to eat, and a tiny piece of society are millionaires...I mean, there's not a strong middle class, though, thank God, this scenario is changing now in these last years, as we became the 8th economy in the world, and the 2nd in all Americas, but this is all recent...
I never really understood how material and 'nice' things could bring happyness...maybe that's how I was raised..(I'm a christian), and when I remember about Jesus Christ, the God alive (according to my believes)! He was poor.. and He taught about life and true feelings, and that's what really matters to me.
I want a comfortable dignity life to me and my family...I don't need fancy stuff to be happy...but I obviously need a faithful man by my side, health happy children, a good and decent work, and most of all, Jesus guiding me and my life/family. That's all that count to me.1
