I've been going through our things these past weeks, trying to pack and prepare us to move into our new home.

A lot of thoughts have gone through my head as I sorted things, mostly about need and want.

I want a quiet house. I want a new mattress (the one we bought a year ago has a foot-wide/long hole in it that sinks to the bottom of the mattress. Thank goodness it's under warranty! I'll have a new one in 2 weeks). I want quiet neighbors. I want new jeans. I want more time to meditate. I want a peaceful soul. I want more books. I don't want to pack, I don't want to wait anymore.  I want to find a grenade launcher and completely murder that car outside my window. I want to go back to Thailand. I want a cup of tea right now... 

It's after these moments I have quiet thoughts of need.

I need. I need... I need... 


It dawns on me. 

I don't need anything. I already have everything.

    :) ...there are some times I've been using those words interchangeably, lately. Thanks for the perspective! :)
