I adore Rachel Zoe. I love her job. I love her husband, and I am falling for her assistant Brad. However, tonight while watching The Rachel Zoe Project I realized something. I realized that my dear friend has it all wrong. Life, she has it all wrong.
If you watch the show at all you know that this season one of the topics of conversation has been Rachel and Rodger starting a family. Her husband, Rodger, is all for starting a family. But Rachel is not quite ready for mommy duties.
In tonight's episode Rachel and one of her make-up/hair stylist were having a heart-to-heart about Rachel and Rodger starting a family. During the conversation Rachel made a comment that made me feel sorry for her. She said that her clothes love her back. I realize the comment was probably half joking, but I do think that maybe some of it was an honest opinion.
Folks, Rachel is wrong. Clothes do not love you back. I don't care how much they cost, and how much you love them. You should expect no love in return. I know my Blogger Friends, the intelligent people that you are, know that materialistic things will not love you back. But if we all know this, why are we so materialistic? Why is our world such a materialistic world?
I'm mostly point the finger at myself. When did I become this way? Sure, I don't go around telling everyone that my Gucci purse loves me, because let's face it, we all know I do not own a Gucci purse. But I want stuff. I want to buy things for my abode, and buy new clothes. All things I don't need, they are just wants. Instead of focusing on "wanting stuff", I should focus more on the relationships I have with people. The people that will actually love me back.
So tomorrow, my Wednesday Wants is that I will stop wanting.
