Luxury or necessity…

Using the prompt for
In Other Words
for my
Tuesday Chatter

“Men are a luxury, not a necessity.”
Cher

I wonder if Cher always felt this way or did it come with age and maturity? I remember being oh so young and needing a man to feel, I was going to say whole or complete, but the truth is I needed a man to feel I had any worth, any value.

I was so insecure and unsure within myself that I thought a boyfriend was what proved my parrot-316442_640worth, what made me beautiful and interesting. A man was what made me better than who I was, or so I thought.  Sad, huh? Makes me angry to think about that young woman who was so miserable because of her confusion and foolishness. That young woman made a lot of silly, and some not so silly mistakes!

Now I am oh so much older and know that I do have worth and beauty and I am interesting. Though still often confused and sometimes foolish I am who I am and ok with it. Would I like to be crazy in love again?  You bet! Is it necessary to be happy and fulfilled? Nope! Would I consider a man in my life a luxury? No, but it would be a sweet gift this time around.

Thought process…

“We become what we think about.”
Earl Nightingale

I am not sure we become what we think about but I do believe how we process what we think about is important. A police officer who sees much of the ugliness of the world must also see the goodness of the world or lose sight of reality.  Same with a doctor or hospice worker, if they see only the death around them they will lose sight of the life around them. It’s the same for everyone working or not, rich or poor, brilliant or ordinary, with families or alone. How we think about the world and our part in it makes a difference and not just for us but also for those around us.

think2

In our day to day life we see and think about good and bad, beautiful and ugly, joys and despair. How we process those things and what we choose to hold on to determines who we become. Life is not easy and is often hard and unfair but how we let these things affect us determines the person we are now and who we will be in the future. We must be wise with our thoughts.
