What are your resources?

What do you consider your resources?

For many of us we often measure this by the amount of money we have in the bank, which I suppose is not a bad thing. After all we all require a certain amount of wealth in order to pay for things we need for survival.

But just how much do we really need?

The basics always come to mind…food, clothing, shelter. But beyond that, I can’t help but feel as though we waste too much of our prized “resources” on extravagances we don’t really need but rather want.

Everyone has desires for bigger and better things than we currently have. You wouldn’t be human if you didn’t. But when we start depleting our resources in order to get what we “want” rather than what we “need”, that’s when we’re headed for trouble.

The older I get the more I understand that it’s not the material possessions that have any real value, it’s the relationships we foster that are our greatest “resource”.
