Typically we are taught that pickiness is a vice, that we should be “grateful for what is given to us” and also to not be choosy. For when we are picky, we certainly make the lives of others more difficult.
But what if pickiness and choosiness was a great virtue? That it makes us less wasteful (we only purchase and own a few great things we value), it makes us more discerning as artists and thinkers, and that it elevates us into something greater?
Moving forward in life, perhaps I desire to become more choosy, more picky, and more discerning when it comes to my tools, my equipment, my clothing, my lifestyle choices, my food and drink, my living quarters and situation, and physiological matters.
In other words when you decide on a place to live or an apartment to rent or a home to buy, be insanely choosy.
Also the virtue of being picky and choosy:
You become less wasteful.
If we only choose to own a few elite goods (minimalist elite aesthetic and ethos) we use the few goods we own more, are more grateful for it and we become less consumerist minded.
