Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


You Need, I Want - Aloha

I rarely buy anything for myself. I will always get my chocolates though. At first they were 3.99 and now I noticed they are 4.99. I cringed. But I wonder why do I cringe about spending just 5.00 on myself?  Maybe because it's not a need.

1. What is one thing that you NEED right now in your life?
2. What is one thing that you WANT?


1. Would you prefer having people over for dinner or going to their house?
I prefer going to their house. No clean up for me :) No stress except not to arrive late :) and maybe bring a gift.

2. Favorite Bible verse and why?
Psalms 139:14
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;     your works are wonderful,     I know that full well.

I had very low self esteem. I've used this to build me up...I"m still being built up.

3. What was the first concert you ever attended, and the most recent one?
It was a gospel concert in Jamaica. Oh that was ages ago! But it was wonderful! I still remember one of the ladies singing, OMG such a voice!!

I haven't been to one since.

4. The year is 2025. What are you doing, and what have you done?
Doing: I'm a psychologist and give children therapy for any trauma especially losing family members

Done: I own a library and an orphanage that also handles adoption and foster care and aids young mothers.

5. What's your favorite Easter treat?
Anything snickers :)

  1. I really don't need anything right now but would love an IPad or Kindle Fire.

  2. I need an organized home. I want a new car. ;D

  3. I really can't think of anything I need except maybe less stress in my life.

    Something I want...some new outdoor furniture.

  4. I need to lose a little weight and get my blood work numbers in the normal range.

    I want to lose a little weight and get my blood work numbers in normal range.

    Here's My Question

  5. 1) The one thing I need right now is a new laptop, as mine is more than 6 years old, and on its last leg :-(

    2) The one thing that I want right now is some one to do some maintenance around my dwelling :-)

  6. You are so right about "want" and "need" I need a new roof but, I really want a pretty new wallet. So, I stay home :)

    Have a great weekend!

  7. I'm kind of the same when it comes to spending money on myself-I feel guilty if I even spend more then $2!

    Need right now would be clothing for the Spring and Summer. Want...a trip somewhere.

    Or chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate :)

    Happy Friday!

  8. I'm the same way - I rarely buy myself something, and when I do I feel guilty! :)

    I've been teaching Princess Nagger the difference between 'want' and 'need'. I can't think of anything that I 'need' right now, but I 'want' a clean house! :)

    Have a great weekend Callie - and Happy Easter! :)

    Easter Eggs-citement

  9. The one thing I need right now is a good doctor who knows answers. One thing that I want right now are answers. I'm tired of practicing physicians - I'm no guinea pig. Sorry just not feeling well. Happy Easter to you and your family if I don't get a chance to tell you later. I hope you & your family have fun.

  10. I need to get my car fix.
    I want a smaller house.

  11. I need a new cell phone. I want an iPhone 4s. :-)

  13. Very interesting post Colette!
    I would like to own a laptop instead of a desktop in the near future. However the thing I really want more than ever is true peace of mind. I read a lot of inspirational material and it has been helping me. Have a good week.

  14. Good Questions, J.S! I will tackle the Thursday Two Q's because that's what I'm playing.

    1. I really have everything I need for right now.

    2. What I want for right now is for my Daughter to be able to complete her run this Sunday, the Paris Marathon. Mrs. Jim and I will be there cheering her on.

    Your other questions, I'll pick two.

    2. Favorite Bible verse and why?
    John three sixteen says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    Why? Peek at my answer to #4 (below).

    4. The year is 2025. What are you doing, and what have you done?
    If still alive am in my 90's and won't be doing much. Not as much as I'm doing right now for sure.
    But I've pretty well done every thing I need to do and always wanted to do right now.
