Look at our animal friends, they just take whatever they need in life…Be contended! You've more than you need….

Recently, My sister won a lucky draw, a Fitness shopping voucher worth RM 100 ( about USD $ 30). We went to the fitness centre and check out what do we need to buy with the shopping voucher. We’ve spent some times in the shop, to study each of the products yet we can’t find anything we need.

As a conclusion, we giveaway the voucher to those people who need to buy some necessity items. What a great relief! Moreover, we can bring happiness to others.

In life, we don’t need so much, but we “WANT” so much. We are being pulled by our strong desire to own something which seriously we don’t need.

Let’s contemplate about it…

If we can’t let go the voucher and we insist we want to get something, we might end up to buy something which not needed, it’s a waste of resources and also jam up our space at home and most important we are actually liberate our mind. If we continue to think of what to buy, it’s create unnecessary thoughts in mind. How important to have peaceful and calm mind!

What a beautiful lesson!

Whenever you want to buy something, always ask yourself,

“Is it necessary?”

“Is it bring convenience or ease to your life?”

“Is it a MUST?”

If not, don’t buy!!!
