Wants vs needs

f

I have a habit of getting caught up in wants and ignoring needs. It is a problem I've had all my life and I know it. I'm becoming much more aware of it and hopefully getting a handle on it. I have almost completely stopped my impulse purchases which I many times regretted. So it's a step in the right direction.

This week I almost bought a new car. I have a car that needs some work. I'm afraid that the work is going to cost a lot of money. So instead of finding out what it will cost, I decided to buy a new car. Luckily, it took longer than anticipated and I have reverted to reason. I am not buying a new car. I am going to see what it will cost to fix my car. I have got to stop doing this. I am trying to change my way of thinking. It's hard, but apparently I'm making progress because I did not drive a new car to work today.

Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm...
