is it really a challenge? [day 93]

I had to stop and ponder the question yesterday, “Is this really a challenge?”  There are times when it feels like one, but for the most part, it’s really not too challenging.  A challenge should make you feel like you’re missing out on something, shouldn’t it?  The purpose is being accomplished and the drive is there, but the difficulty is missing.

I suppose this could mean one of two things:

Not only do we not need a lot of stuff, but we if we don’t buy new things, we don’t miss them.

On rare occasions I like to shop.  At least it’s what I call shopping, or treasure hunting, because the only place I actually like to shop is yard sales, thrift stores and craigslist.  My friend calls shopping ‘retail therapy’.  Me?  I need therapy after shopping!

I also went into the challenge not really needing or wanting anything, which probably means I have too much stuff already.  The only thing I don’t need and really would like to purchase is welding equipment.  If I do purchase that in the future, rest assured it will be used equipment and will get a lot of use.  The garage is about 23% on it’s way to being an art studio.

I’m not challenging myself enough and I should step it up a notch.

What else should I do?  Somehow I need to find better ways to shop for food and toiletries.  Giving up, or modifying fast food purchases might be next on the list.  Any ideas?
