I Use To.Every holiday season, I use to want so much. I wanted this or I wanted that. I would walk in a store and I'd come out with a list of 10 things I wanted, at least.
Now that I am older, my wanting has gone down tremendously. There are no longer wants in my life. As long as my needs are met, I am completely content.
I don't want the big tv. I don't want the newest computer. I don't want the mp3 pla
I have downsized tremendously, for myself, in the last year. And frankly, I have realized I don't need all these material things in the world to make me happy.
In the past, I thought it was all these material things that would make me happy.
Damn America :)
I guess what I am saying is that I no longer want excessively. There are things I still want and dream of having one day. But my wants are so few and far between now.
I no longer know what to ask for when it comes to Christmas because to be honest, I don't want more "stuff." I'd rather just spend it with loved ones around me.
It's sad it took me this long to realize all this :)
But I'm glad I'm there now.
