Powerful words from Dr. Wayne Dyer.
I've finally reached that place in life where I have realized what I need. To love, to be loved, good health and enough money to live comfortably.
The money part can be subjective. Some people need more than others. I'm happy to have a roof over my head, electricity and utilities, computer and internet, good food, a reliable vehicle and going out to eat on occasion.
Since I'm retired, I don't need to be buying clothes and shoes all the time. hmmmm I don't remember the last time I bought a new outfit. It doesn't matter. I have enough clothes in my closet!
We stick to a strict budget and plan for special purchases, which includes those things we really don't need, but want. I can't explain how special those "want" purchases are now . . . I appreciate them.
In my working days everything I wanted was a need and I didn't do without. What that got me is a house full of stuff I really don't need. I didn't appreciate the emotional value of anything.
It made a huge difference in my life.
Do you know what you really need?
"You have succeeded in life when all you
really want is only what you really need."
