    Great reminder. When I take the time for gratitude life is simpler and more meaningful. I’ve been thinking about a purchase and keep putting it on hold – subconsciously I know I don’t need it, just want it!

      Thanks for your post Tony! I’m glad this reminder can be useful to you. I think that we can also enjoy purchases that are “wants” if we are mindful about them and decide that they can add something of value or meaning to our lives. I’ve seen too many instances in which people tend to purchase something based on emotion, and then it becomes just another item to donate at the end of the year. Enjoy whatever it is you have, and if you find something that can add more joy to your life (and you have the means to obtain it), I say go for it! Sounds like it would be a mindful purchase.
