Everything You Need

How often do you say you need something? I need a new pair of shoes. I need that new widget. I need mo’ money!

I need,
I need.
I need!

Perhaps we need to choose our words more carefully.

There are times we actually need something: Sometimes we really do need a new pair of shoes, a new winter coat, or a triple-tall soy latte (probably not). We obviously need food, water, housing, and clothes. And, to live a fulfilling life, we need our health, our relationships, our sanity.

But there are many things we do not need: the majority of things we think we need, are only things we want.

You already have everything you need.

Look around—you’ll never need more than this.
