Wanting What You’ve Got

“It’s not having what you want
It’s wanting what you’ve got” – I have a lot. I have a comfortable life. Compared to many, I have an easy life. I have just about anything I could ever want. But I get sucked in sometimes, thinking it’s not enough. And I’m not talking just about material things – I’m talking about another degree, more time to volunteer at the kid’s school, cook more from scratch.

“I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame” – I’d like to blame the economy. It has been extra tough on us this past year. My husband has his own acupuncture practice and insurance doesn’t always cover “voodoo medicine.” People have to pay out-of-pocket. So it’s one of the first “extras” to go. We’re noticing the tight squeeze and it hasn’t been comfortable for us – but we’re managing. So every time I feel lame I try to focus on what we DO have.


“I’m gonna soak up the sun
While it’s still free
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me” – The weather this week is going to be gorgeous. Low 80’s. Sunny. Spring is in full swing. So today, I’m gonna soak up the sun. Lay any money worries aside and just relax and enjoy this moment. Right now.
