Since we came into this world, we have had not had to tell ourselves to demand or seek out the things we want, but rather we have had to learn how to deal with all the things we want to figure out if we really need it. We might have come face-to-face with the reality that food was a necessity, but the black patent leather shoes weren't; the school clothes were, but the frilly dresses and designer jeans weren't; the reliable means of transportation was a necessity, but the shiny new car every other year was not. We will often struggle with trying to decipher the difference between need and want throughout life - simply because the circumstances change and we are called upon to change with them. In time, we can become a little confused between the two, especially when we aren't aware of this nasty little thing called "greed". It rears its ugly head more often than we'd like to admit and we struggle with this thing called "contentment" more often than we'd like to admit. The words we need to embrace: "Life isn't defined by what we have - but by whose we are!"
