Posts Tagged ‘Feng Shui’

Everyday of our lives, we crave something more. What we have isn’t good enough. We need something bigger, better, more expensive. Whatever it is, we can’t get enough of change. Recently, “Carrie”, “Miranda” and my other friends, let’s call her “Stacy” (instead of Stanford Blatch on Sex and the City), have recently become obsessed with the art of Feng Shui. “Carrie” has decided to Feng Shui her apartment before her new house mate arrives, “Miranda”, the interior designer, has given herself a budget to redo her bedroom giving it a more “bohemian” feel and buying vintage pieces of furniture and trinkets, and “Stacy” has bought a book telling her the dos and don’ts of feng shui (for example she replaced her mirror in her bedroom with a bulletin board because the book claimed that having a mirror in your room is bad). Earlier today I went with my friend “Anthony” to Pottery Barn. As I roamed around the huge store, I kept making a list in my head of all of the things in my apartment that just aren’t suitable anymore.

1) My chaise has to go.
2) The down-comforter on my bed.
3) My kitchen table.
4) My kitchen plates.
5) My shower curtain.

 When I hit shower curtain I just knew. It’s not that those things weren’t “suitable” anymore. I was just bored with what I had. I needed more excitement. Change. Diversity. Then I had a thought: maybe my failed relationships in the past ended because of the lack of excitement. The lack of surprise. Is it bad that I’m a change craver? Will my want for change affect the relationships that I will have in the future? Or will I finally learn to accept what is good?
