Needs vs. Wants

Posted on Jul 16, 2017 | by Brenda Stanton

This statement about needs vs. wants , says something so groundbreaking, so fundamental to your ability to experience inner well-being that it could potentially go unnoticed.

Treating your needs as optional is something most all of us have done, or continue to do each day without even realizing it. This is a habit of self-sabotage where you may continually ignore needs that you have without even realizing that’s what you’re doing.

Without knowing that you even have needs, let alone even have the right to honor them, is what can be troubling and will, without a doubt, cause havoc in your life and your overall well-being.

If you’re someone who has loads of responsibilities on your plate – a family, work, relationships and a slew of other responsibilities and tasks that need to be taken care of, you most likely have needs that aren’t getting met in the way that would soothe your soul.


The Quality of Your Life

“Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once” ~Anon

I encourage you to read the quote above again and really think about it.

Then consider this: what if the statement is True – and that time is just a boundary in which we base our life around – to keep everything from happening at once?

If we all truly believed the above quote to be True, how would you then look at your time?

Would you stop being so hard on yourself and allow things to happen rather than always feeling like you need to make them happen? Would you give yourself a break and stop beating yourself up for all the stuff that needs to get done and say it will get done, in it’s right time?

But then, you might say to yourself: “But how will I reach my potential, achieve my goals, and get everything done that needs to get done, in order to ‘get there’, if I’m not pushing myself to do it ALL”?

Sound familiar?
