After considering my own piece on the current deprivation movement, I decided to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. The truth is, every day I do something that is free (or very close to it) that I deeply enjoy. Granted, I do find joy in a wide variety of things, from eating at a fine restaurant to making my own fabric softener.
Today’s free fun has included:
- Lighting five tea light candles
- Taking my dog for a walk
- Watching old episodes (but new to me) of Bones on hulu
- Getting puppy breath kisses this morning
Granted, these aren’t completely free. The tea light candles cost me a few pennies, my dog has recurring expenses (food, vaccinations, etc.), and cable internet isn’t free. But when you amortize these expenses out, they don’t cost that much, and the enjoyment I receive is well worth it.
