he's been saving up for one for some time .
we were having a conversation about needs vs. wants and he had a revelation . he doesn't need an ipod, he wanted one but doesn't need it . --there's nothing wrong with wanting and/or needing an ipod- it's just not for him .
then he said, "mom, i think that when i'm a man, i'm going to live differently ." i asked him what he meant . he explained that he doesn't want to want what everyone else has just because everyone else has it .
he wants to live differently .
to hear my son say that felt so good!
we have always tried to live simply and tried to not become too attached to our 'things' . it's a good thing too! as we pack up our home i am amazed at how much stuff we have accumulated over the past 13 years in this house .
this upcoming year we will focus on the simple pleasures- delicious food (of course), the beauty of nature, meeting new friends and being surrounded by our family .
i want to live differently too .
watch this video of one family living within their means- it's amazing!!!!
p.s. we are actively looking for the right motorhome for our family . please message me if you know of one for sale . we will need lots of storage space and beds for everyone (that's 5) .
oh yes, and one more thing- kris will be playing at ruby moon july 30. if you live in thunder bay it would be so nice to see you before we go
