What Was the Last Big Purchase That You Have Made?

It is the kind of charmed life that is best kept to yourself. Unlike many of your friends and family members who spend hours a day posting their news on social media sites, you have always been one to quietly enjoy your good fortunes. From the latest Shelby Cobra kit car that you ordered while you were on vacation to the authentic replication Jimi Hendrix guitar that you have in your basement, only your closest friends and family members know the rather expensive purchases you have made.

You have always loved performance driving and listening to classic rock and roll, so those people who know you well are not really surprised when you tell them that you are again considering another Shelby Cobra kit car for your collection. Likewise, the people who know you best are not surprised when you explain that you have traded one of the guitars in your collection for another rare find.

Are You Quiet or Loud About Your Material Possessions?
We live in interesting times. While some of us are quietly going about a life of service there are others who are shouting about their possessions from social media mountain tops. Both of these extremes, of course, have risks. When you are silent about your good deeds you risk letting others know that this kind of work is an important part of your life. On the flip side, it you are announcing to the world about the latest expensive purchases that you have made you risk the attention of people who might be jealous or, worse yet, making you the victim of their crimes.

Fortunately, you do not have to announce to the world your latest purchase to enjoy the items that you invest in. If you are someone who enjoys custom roadsters, for example, you likely have a club that enjoys the same interests. With only 538 1964 Mark II models built, in fact, it is a pretty small and elite crowd that shares ownership of these cars. Finding a way to enjoy the things that you like the most does not have to involve a loud proclamation on social media. You can simply join others with your same interests on one of the short tracks, speedways, and super speedways that range from 0.5 to 2.5 miles in length.
