I have known some people who spend so much time worrying about and negotiating over saving a dollar here and there, or not wanting to go out to see the world, because they need to save for the new roof. Of course we need that roof over our heads, but will there really ever be a time when every single thing is lined up and in order and then you can go on that trip? I am thinking no.
I believe Ms. Parker spoke a bit of truth in her statement. Usually the necessities are taken care of, if for no other reason than instinct. We eat because we need to. We pay for the house because we need one. We put gas in the car because we have to get places. For me a luxury here or there can seem like a necessity, and that is when the line can get blurry. I admit that about myself. I like a new piece of clothing, or a road trip. Even when they might not seem needful to someone else, they do to me.
So thank you Ms. Parker. Today I am choosing to agree with you.
