Luxuries vs. Necessities

The battle is on....

"Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities."
- Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959)

I don’t know that I would go as far to say that all the luxuries in life would solve my problems or keep me satisfied, but I do have a top 5 list of luxuries and necessities. This top 5 is essential to keeping me balanced, happy, and away from the edge of insanity.

Top 5 luxuries:
-comfy bed to sleep
-roof over my head
-food in my refrigerator
-reliable vehicle
-money in the bank

Top 5 necessities:
-cup of coffee every morning
-love from Brandon
-friends to enjoy life with
-this laptop for blogging
-my iPhone

Ok, maybe my perspectives are a little skewed, but in all reality, a lot of the time, we take the necessities and luxuries in our life for granted. I know I do. A lot. I need to get better at this. I might think about joining a club or going to luxury rehab. Is that a bit extreme?

Just in case you're curious, such a place does exist: 
Addiction Treatment and Luxury Rehab

Bahahahaaaa! This is hilarious. This is strangely a real place. If only I had the kind of money it takes to get into financial trouble to HAVE to check into a place like this. 

All in all, I feel I have a great take on life. I enjoy every minute of it, and I thank God every morning for giving me the breath to wake up. I love my soon-to-be husband and never forget to tell him everyday. 

Live free. Laugh often. Love always.
