Not to sound like an old biddy, but I've always believed we always get the things we NEED to survive in life, but not always the things we WANT. People matter far more to me than material things, and I think I'm rich in the things that matter most: the love of my family and friends.
I mean..have you ever hugged a sports car? They are nice to have, fun to ride in, and get you places, but they don't hold you when you're having a bad day, make you laugh at a funny joke or tuck you in bed at night at the end of the day. I can replace anything..except for the people I hold dear in my life.
The rich get what they want materialistically speaking, but money can't buy you love and happiness.
Yes, we can all get what we want, if we really know what we want in the first place!
If it was easy to get what you wanted all the time, we would not appreciate things we have worked hard to get, like saving up for a new dress or going out for a meal in a "posh" restuarant. There would be no sense of achievement in getting the things you really wanted in the first place.
Just My Opinion.....full of them.....hehehe
Could it be that what we think we want is not what we truly want, but just what we have been conned into believing we need. For example do we really NEED lots of money, fast cars or big houses? Surely all we need are good friends. Sorry that?s it for my 'newage' ramble.. smile have fun.
