I heard this Black Friday more than 164 million Americans are shopping. How can I resist the temptation? So I decided to join in the great shopping carnival as well, and these are what I got.
Another reason is, I heard some good news this morning. Although I cannot share it now, I will definitely share it later when the time is right.
So to celebrate this good news, I gave myself these little “rewards”.
Then I remember that before I practiced Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa), every time I felt upset, I went out shopping. I thus ended up buying a lot of things that I never used and wasted a lot of money. (Do you know any other woman doing this too? Your wife perhaps?)
Ever since I started practicing Falun Gong, this never happened again. Nobody can upset me anymore. I am always calm and happy. Even when I was subjected to the cruelest persecution, I still feltI was better off than before.
So, shopping is now a means to celebrate good news and to reward myself, instead of a way to ease my bad mood and to release the pain in my heart, like in those “old bad days”. Isn’t it wonderful?
This one should be able to give me some warmth in this coldest Thanksgiving! 遇上有史以來最冷感恩節，這件羽絨服正當其時！
