It's interesting the change that is starting to happen in our house as we prepare for this "life change". It's so much more than just surgery, it's a change in attitude, a change in the way we think. So don't laugh but a big wake up to me was when we were watching an episode on Oprah. (I said don't laugh.) The show was about surviving in the rough economy and the focus was re-evaluating what we consume and why. It got me asking myself some big questions:
- Why is my mind set on always getting the next thing?
- Have I lost perspective of what I want out of life?
- Am I giving up the things I want most to get what makes me feel good now?
- Do I even know the difference between a NEED and a WANT?
