03 Feb: Needs and Wants

I recently heard an author confess that the greatest struggles in life happened when he confused his needs and his wants. This quote made me think about my own struggles and whether I was also confusing things I wanted versus things I thought I needed. It also hits home because I’m always thinking about providing for my family and sometimes feel like we never have enough. When I think about my most fundamental needs, they really boil down to shelter and food and a job that pays for them.
