Living an opulent lifestyle

I’m not even sure if opulent is a word. It has been awhile since I’ve studied or tried to learn something new. I have been working and studying languages, but I just don’t feel like I’m gaining any new knowledge. In this post, I want to talk about living a lifestyle that is extravagant. I definitely think that I live an opulent lifestyle. I make sure that I have all of my comfort items and more. For example, I have four oil diffusers for my room. FOUR! I don’t need that many, but I like being able to diffuse oils constantly. Another example is that I have about eight candles in my room. I don’t need that many. Some would say that two candles would suffice… but not for me. I need to have variety. I know that I am very extra and I could cut down on the amount of stuff I own, but I don’t want to.

I believe that life is about fulfillment. And I feel fulfilled when I make myself happy. Am I the only person that does this?

  1. You are not the only one 🙂 My favorite things are lotions, candles, t-shirts and cool drinking cups (you know, that keep your drinks cold all day long). I have tried to trip down some of my access, and I have. I am still working on it. You are not alone!

  2. 🙂 Good question. I wonder if being ascetic is a real path of life to fulfillment. Some claim to be so. It is good to evaluate our life choice from time to time. I think the best is have balance. I am willing to take a fast and retreat from the modern life from time to time, but living that all the time, is not something I can do or even right. I guess we all should follow pur conviction.

    Having a simpler life is my goal too, but I guilty of having multple shampoos and conditioners and body wash (some are even identical). Let not even talk about shoes.

  3. There are many ways to feel fulfilled and content. For many years having a full and overflowing pantry and freezer made me feel fulfilled and safe. Today having people in my life, interacting with me on a daily basis is what makes me feel fulfilled. Blessings to you!! Oh and I just ordered a new diffuser and some new oils 🙂 Can’t wait for them to arrive!!!
