It seems the more we have, the more we want. Have you ever noticed that? Wants become needs, and we go into debt to fulfill these 'needs'. Yet, we are never satisfied.

Worse, we work so hard to fulfill these wants, we never have time to enjoy them.

I often think embracing a minimalist attitude is a better way. Imagine finding satisfaction in simple things: the sunrise and sunset, the patter and fresh smell of a spring rain, or the embrace of a child.

When did we lose sight of the important things in life? Love and laughter. Health and happiness. Wisdom and  wealth. True wealth, not wealth measured by material items, but the riches found in nature, in friends, in family.

Isn't it time, we reexamined our priorities and apply them to this matter of satisfaction?


  1. it's always good to reexamine priorities and focus on the more important things in life:)
    Happy A-Zing!

  2. Very true. Sometimes I have to remind myself to enjoy the small things instead of stressing over the other issues.
