A Dellaism

A lot of random things go through my head. Many of which I would be embarrassed to repeat.
I had one thought the other day, however, that I thought might bear sharing.
It is important not to confuse "standard of living" with "quality of life".
They are not the same thing, and often do not even go hand in hand.
Decide which is more important to you, and seek after that one.

So true... my dh works in the financial industry, and he has a saying: "A NEED is a WANT that your neighbor already has."

This really isn't a comment, per sae. I couldn't see where to contact you except in a comment. I saw you followed my friend's (melissa johnson) blog. I also saw very easily that you are LDS. I am LDS, and am in Va Beach too. I attend the Sandbridge ward. I was wondering how you know Mel, and what ward you go to? Maybe we can chat? I'm always looking for new LDS mom's w/kids to meet. thanks Holly

Sometimes having quality in our lives makes it more fun and spices things up. However, it is a good idea to make sure needs are met first. My husband and I are the kind of people who get out of debt quick when it is necessary for debt (student loans, medical bills.) We have a small TV in our living room. We don't live in luxary, and if we do something that is luxurious to us, it is likely not luxurious to other normal, higher class people.
