What do you really need? What if some of the things you think you need, you do not need at all?
I was in a store the other day and was putting some items in my cart and before I reached the line at the register, I looked at all the items in my cart and realized, I don’t need any of these items and why am I getting them? I was proud of myself that I decided not make those purchases.
Later in the day, as I was jotting words down for my next post, I was wondering about the word “need”.
I have been taking notice of not only myself but others and what we all think we need.
Do we really need the approval of others? Do we really need to be offended by things that don’t even affect us?
Do we really need that order of fries or that fourth cocktail?
And, as I driving home and sat at a set of lights today watching other drivers………come on…….. Do people really need to speed through the light that has already turned yellow? Then I saw a man switch lanes and go through a red light. What is wrong with people? They are endangering the lives of others including themselves. I wish there was a cop around to see and catch that individual.
Can you imagine being burden free of so much self-imposed and useless need? All these nagging little needs……………………..
I’ve been making it a habit lately to stop and ask myself……..is this really a need, or just a comfortable way to hide from my best possibilities.
Most people lack a great deal of patience. Slow down everyone!
