Defining Wants and Needs. I WANT...
Saturday, April 27, 2013
I want a massage.
That is on my mental agenda.
Perhaps I will attend a virtual massage therapy session and gently ease it all that way.
Push it into the realm of needs? Maybe.
Wants: (aka 20 wishes or Bucket list)
to go to Paris
To go to the National Parks
To go to the British Isles
To go to Bermuda
To go to San Jose, CA
To California, and to visit my brothers and friends across the states
To go walking, for a hike without hurting and without my allergies driving me to distraction
To get a smaller weaving loom than the one I own
To go to some concerts (nothing in particular at this time)
More realistic wants
to go to the beach and sit on a towel in the hot sand, and walk in the water, and swim. Put that on my list for this summer.
To get that massage.
Hmm, I really feel like most needs are met, and if not, I really didn't need it did I?
God provides what I need.
Today I am learning contentment - I went to the public library after lunch, picked up two books I ordered, and the DVD series # 1 Ladies Detective Agency (read a few of the books). I decidedly paid attention to the warm sun on my legs and arms, and how that felt good, despite the aches I was feeling. For activity, I went to the fabric store and walked around (3/4 of a mile walking) and bought two balls of really soft yarn (for my senses, because it felt good to touch), and a sequin headband for my doll project - to use as a belt for the doll.
I think I might lay out the fabric for my doll soon, or tomorrow afternoon.
Praise God I don't feel I really need anything, even though I hurt, I am content, and that is a good feeling. I want to not feel as much pain when I do, but am working on what I can do about that.
God bless you. I am going to go log my walking now. See, I did fit in some form of exercise. Gentle does it.
