I want to…

The sun sets on another day…

As the sun set, well, it was awesome, but as I rushed to the beach all I found was a deep mist that covered the horizon, and the sunset was gone.

I wrote along the same lines here.

So what is it you want? What is it you need? What do you want to do? What do you have to do? I started writing this the first time and it just went negative immediately. I realized I was looking at it wrong, and needed to change my perspective. So I did.

Sometimes it is easy to see what we want and know the difference, and sometimes we have to think though it a little. The difference between wants, and needs. Sometimes they align quite nicely, sometimes they don’t. I am not going to go overboard but it is a good idea to take stock and look at your wants and needs a lot, and find the path between them that will make you happy and productive. 

I know I know, this is nebulous. All I ask is when you fill out the want list, make sure you have the need list right there. Maybe fill out the need list first?

So as the sun sets on another day, my father said some unique things, but he divided wants and needs pretty well. Consider them both as you go through life, and get what you want, and what you need no matter what.

Sleep sweet, love life, and enjoy the breeze…
