Over the last couple of months I've really noticed changes in the way my family thinks. At one time husband thought riding the worker/driver bus was for losers. Now - he loves the bus. Thinks it's the greatest thing and only a fool wouldn't ride it. easy child - a High School Senior - thought only losers walked...Cool kids drove to school. He's been walking the two miles to school everyday and thinking that it's great exercise. I now drive my little blue car all the time (instead of the SUV) and I'm falling in love with this car and its 35mpg. Plus, I used to think my house was too small or that it needed granite counters, hardwood floors, bigger bathrooms.... Now, I just want to be able to keep it! I'm wanting to buy off-brands on things. I'm re-evaluating what is a need and what is a want. I'm finding out that a lot of my Needs were really wants. Is anyone else going through this? What changes in your thinking have you noticed?
