The day you declare a truce on desires for money, power, pleasure and fame is the day you become unhappier.

Experiences live on in our memories and in the stories we tell, while our material goods ‘disappear’ as we inevitably get used to them. A once-cherished Walkman is now obsolete, but, as Humphrey Bogart once told Ingrid Bergman, ‘We’ll always have Paris.’

Body Moving

  • You are what you own.
  • You are what you wear.
  • You are where you work.
  • You are what you say and tweet.

Is your lifestyle a clear indication of who you are and what you really desire?

Most of the time we can’t get what we want, so our actions are pragmatically confined to what we can actually get and make the best of.

But if you adopt the thinking of your existing lifestyle you may dent your imagination. The will to believe beyond the way society defines you is the only way to convert fantasies into reality.

Reflection is both internal and external. You can accept it in perpetuity or you can think and chip away at the things you need to be happy. The work is waiting, but only if you really want it.

Hats

Hats protect us from the sun. They’re useful for sports like baseball so one can see the ball. Hats also cover up bad hair days and bald spots.

There are all types of hats: cowboy hats, sombreros, and baseball caps. Hats are just as much about protection as they are style.

Sometimes people wear to show support for a team or brand. Hats become a jersey for the head.

Wearing hats as advertisements is beyond what they were originally intended for. But the same can be said for just about any attire or material desire (e.g. car, house) that you dress up beyond its use.

It’s not just enough to own for reasons of utility. We want to express ourselves through specific products. And nothing signals louder than a hat. There’s a reason bugs fly around your head; your head is the first thing they see and how they ultimately evaluate you.

We all risk becoming products, flashing flyers of attention to show our wealth and style. The hat is your first line of expression.
