that the more I think about what I’m doing on a day to day basis, the more I do things that also make me think about what I’m doing more. Here’s what I mean. When you don’t buy things firsthand, you can’t just run down to the store when you need some crap. You have to plan. When secondhand stores make up the bulk of your shopping, there’s no telling how a trip to the store might turn out. In this way, the practice that emerged from my attempt to living deliberately causes me to live more deliberately in turn.
It’s kind of a beautiful symmetry hidden in the mundanities of daily living.
