Balancing Wants and Needs

Photo by Trina Morrow

I wanted to go to yoga; but my car stopped at the mouth of a tunnel and refused to move until it was pushed by the car behind me. I was later reminded of Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones with “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes  you might find, you get what you need.” I wanted to go to yoga, but my car needed a new clutch. I was stuck in that tunnel; cell phones do not work in that tunnel; I could not get out of that tunnel alone. I am stubborn; I want to do it all by myself. I want to say thanks over and over to the people who literally pushed me out of the tunnel and safely onto the shoulder of the highway. They also pushed me into admitting I need a little help sometimes. There are times to just be in the moment, to recognize what is happening and be grateful. This holiday season, with all of the wants, remember, we need each other.
