Be Happy With Just A Little
Is It Possible?
In a world of plenty
Wherever we look there is more, more, more
The newest and the best there is
Even that only last for a little bit
Then something else comes along
You guessed it
Wow that is even better than before
So what are we reaching for?
Something we can never have
Are we all rabbits chasing the carrot on the string?
So maybe what we have isn't half bad?
Actually, maybe what we have is really so good
Have you ever watched an info- commercial and said I want that so bad
You can imagine how great your life would be with it
More times than not
It was just a dream
I wanted it until the next dream came along
I would soon forget
Then when I got older
I had money to buy whatever I wanted
So when the next info-commercial came on
I was ready
Charge card in hand
I couldn't order it fast enough
Now all I had to do is wait
When it arrived I knew my life was changed forever
Before it came I thought of so many things I was going to do
It wasn't long
Before the incredible item I bought was tossed in box
Soon to be forgotten about until years later
To this day
I still say
What a waste of money
I learned the hard way
So when you want something more
Ask yourself do I really need it?
Is it going to work like they promise?
Check to see if other people have bought it
If they liked it or did they hate it
Then it is up to you to decide?
Even if you want it
See if you can wait
Until the compulsive urge is passed
Hang on for a week
Maybe you still want it
If you do
You might find someone else that bought it and don't need it anymore
You might be able to safe some money
Then again maybe you will be like me
I don't want it anymore
I rather spend my money elsewhere
