I Just Want What I Want

I was just perusing around the net when I came across a fabulous piece that I thought you guys would benefit from. Along with the quote of the day, I would encourage you to also check out the happiness-quotes.com. This is just wonderful!! 

Quote of the Day:

“Sometimes you want what you want but it’s not exactly what you need. God knows what you need and is willing to supply. Sit tight because He has it all!”

Excerpt of Wants Versus Needs 

Wants versus needs. There are actual needs, and there are arbitrary wants. The most basic needs you as a human require for survival are oxygen, water, food, clothing and shelter. Anything beyond those are “wants”.

When you cannot distingush betweent wants versus needs, or if you can’t identify a want as a want, you set yourself up to live in a constant state of craving and disappointment.
