Find your own value

[Daily Blog Post #259]

Today we went to the fake shopping market.

Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Yeezys.

All fake items, and everything was up for bargain.

Some of my friends purchased fake Louis Vuitton bags, while I slightly overpaid for a regular black belt (no brand) because I needed a belt.

My friend thought I overpaid, while I in turn thought they overpaid for fake luxury bags.

Yet both of us willingly exchanged money for perceived value. I purchased functionality and they purchased brand value.

At night, we saw an acrobatics show and I was thoroughly amazed. The ticket was only $50 USD and I thought that i received double the value. Some of the stunts were one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen; it was all America’s got talent worthy. Yet, I overheard some of my classmates say that they didn’t think the show was worth $50 USD, and although I disagreed, I had to respect their thought process.

I think it’s important to allow each other to find value in life in our own way. Just like I pay hundreds of dollars for some playing cards, other people would pay the same amount for a watch, or T-shirt that says “Supreme”

There’s value in everything but it’s important to find it yourself.

You need to decide how much you are willing to pay.
