Day 133 – Do You Want It Or Need It?

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you might find
You get what you need

Need- something you have to have
Want -something you would like to have

The Rolling Stones wrote about it. But the real question remains:

What do you really want from life?

I mean really, really want. If you sit down and think about why you want anything, you can almost always discover that the main reason is because you want to feel a certain way. It could be to feel peace of mind, fulfillment, purpose, or even freedom. You may think you want money, but what does money give you? Freedom? And what does freedom give you? On and on it goes and if you dig deep enough, you’ll realize that all you truly want is to feel good and live a happy life.

Because in actuality, you only need four things to survive:

  • A roof over your head
  • Enough food and water to maintain your health
  • Basic health care and hygiene products
  • Clothing (just what you need to remain comfortable and appropriately dressed)

Everything that goes beyond this – a big house, name-brand clothes, fancy foods and drinks, a new car – is a want.

Does that mean that you should only buy the things that you need? Not at all. Life is meant to be lived, not survived. Treat yourself to some wants along the way, but do so when you can afford to, and enjoy those wants as the extras that they are.

So, today I am grateful for everything that I need in my life right now. And by doing so, I am allowing the universe to bring more of what I truly want to come into my life.
