At Postconsumers, we have only one goal – and it may not be the goal that you’re expecting us to say. We want you to achieve the satisfaction of enough for today. While we believe that learning to let go of addictive consumerism is an important step on the pathway there, it’s not the only step on the pathway to satisfaction. Occasionally, we like to give suggestions for ways that you can get to that point called the satisfaction of enough. Since we’ve been talking a lot about pets and their eco-friendly value this month, we thought we’d devote an article to how pets can help you achieve the satisfaction of enough.
Pets Love You Unconditionally … For Food!
If you’ve never had a pet before, then you may not know how simple love can really be. Pets will love you unconditionally as long as you feed them. Even if you think of yourself as not a particularly loving person, we’re pretty sure that your pet will see through that. Everybody needs love, and a pet can give you that.
Create Structure in Your Life
You’d be surprised how many people falter because of a lack of structure in their life. A lack of structure can lead to a lack of feeling as though you understand your place in the world, which can in turn lead to emotional shopping and bad budgeting. Animals give you structure in your life. Outdoor dependent animals like dogs ensure that you’re keeping to a walking schedule, but even less maintenance-deep animals keep you on schedule with feeding and play time. Create structure and you’ll find that the overall path to satisfaction can be easier. Pets can help with feeling that you have enough for today.
