But this journey is about challenging and changing parts of myself that I don't like. This part of the journey being to remind myself that I am so incredibly blessed to have what I need - in a world where so many people have ridiculously less than they need. To be more thankful and approach things I want with more thought: Do I NEED this? Is this an extravagant luxury? Where was this made? Who made it? Do I have one already?
To learn the difference between NEED and WANT and to ask myself this on a daily basis is probably the best thing I will ever do for myself.
