I read a lot of blogs on a variety of topics. I find myself going through phases with the types of blogs I read. Lately, I've been most interested in reading Quaker blogs and blogs that support my four basic Quaker testimonies: simplicity, nonviolence, equality, and integrity. For me, part of living with integrity is being aware of the consequences of my actions and trying to make a difference in the world.
One blog I've added to my regular reading is Be More With Less: Life on Purpose. Recently, Courtney, the author of this blog, talked about her Starbucks addiction and how, over the course of a month, she discovered that she had spent a whopping $225 there! She felt that this spending was not matching her desire to live "life on purpose" and so, the next month, chose to spend that exact amount in a way that would line up with her values and would make a difference in the lives of others. I recommend you go here to read about what she did with her money. And maybe it will inspire the rest of us to do something similar.
