Daily Journey – September 29th: Your Actual Needs Are Small
Your most immediate need is air to breath. Then you need water. Occasionally food. Finally, we need some form of shelter from the elements.
The quantity and quality of these things we need can be easily skewed by our own warped perceptions of reality. As we grow more and more successful in our lives we start to feel the need to have bigger and better things.
We want bigger homes, faster cars, better clothes, gourmet food, fancy water, and access to cleaner air.
Try to remember, your actual needs are much less then your hearts current desires. Letting your desires for more drive you will crush you emotionally and ruin your chances for happiness and stability.
