I LOVE shopping for TVs. The newest “4K Ultra HD Awesome Sauce TV” in the showroom get’s my heart pounding and I can see my life being better with it in my living room. This is going to solve ALL my problems… right here!
Of course, it won’t solve all my problems. The good feelings of “wow” wear off quickly with me and gadgets pretty quickly – within just a couple of weeks, the TV would just be another thing in my house that I enjoy, but no nearly as much as I thought I would.
This happens to me all the time. Not always when I’m shopping for stuff – but in other areas of life too.
Haven’t you ever heard something and thought it was the answer to all your questions… only to try and reflect on it later and it really didn’t answer all of your questions, as a matter of fact it answered none of them. It was SO INSPIRATIONAL in the moment… but failed to hold that same power after a short period of time.
