want or a need,, ??? do you know the difference ,,

learning what is a need and what is a want,, i want to buy it but i dont need it,, but i really want it , but i really dont need it , so the debate continues,,, one of the many decisions in life that most folks cant tell the difference,, 
will it make me happy,, ( for a short time yes it might) 
will i use it often ( i hope so ) 
and will i regret it later ( i dont know until i buy it first ) :) 
so the debate in my head continues :)

i posted this on my facebook,, but didnt go into detail about it,,  and had me think about some of the things that i purchase ,, big things,, that made me look back how things fell into place,,  

making any decisions is never easy,,  i often will talk to some of my dear friends , and see if they have some insight that i might overlook,,  and also chatting with some of my family,, but in the end i have to make the final decision,,  its never easy,, many of you came along for the ride when i was looking for my camper studio,, it took months,, and i found just what a wanted and needed, in fact,, it was more then i ever expected,,  some of us take the risks of decision making as an easy step,, they take it was it comes, and if its the wrong,, well they deal with it,, and move on,, but when one is watching evey penny,, well its a bit harder,, you dont want to waste any of your money on a bad decision,,  and caution is in play,,, 
i dont lmake big decisions without alot of research or time ,,  when i had the farm,, and i was younger it was easier to take the risks,, and there were many times that it was not a right decision,, but you had to take the risk,, if you didnt in business you would not get anywhere,, and no money was ever made by not spending it first,, the old saying it takes money to make money,, its very true,, but at what point does one stop when things dont go as plan,,,   well i had that desicion too,, when the farm was near the last of raising cattle i knew it was not a way to continue,, that if i did i risk losing all of it,, and i knew then something had to change, and change it did,,,  i ended up still with the farm at a smaller scale and able to keep what i had worked hard for,, not that losing wasnt painful yes it was,, but to stop the bleeding , and that is what we did,, we now are better for some of those painful decisions,, not pleastant,,  i wanted to continue full force but i also knew i was getting older and the phyical work that was required was starting to show,,  i no longer could handle the heavy work,,  like in my 20s and i always planned to reduce the work load by the time i was 50  and as it work out it happen at 46  that the farm slowed down,,   so some decisions come weather you want them or not,, and some are made for you ,, an i believe that is by gods design,, not mine,, when i look back at all those plans, and what i wanted,, he knew full well what i needed first,,  and he did help us all the way,, not always easy but he guided our steps,, and we thought we were in control,,  hellllo we are not,,  but at the same time i often believe that when one door closes and other opens,, its happen time and time again,, and in the end,, i glad that things worked out as they did,,  and i have to remember always,, before any decision,, to ask  the one that  can guide me and really knows the outcome long before i do,, and to trust him,, keep carving folks,, arleen
