MENU

Do you find yourself always wanting more, or are you satisfied with what you have?

Some people always want more than what they have (and that’s okay!). They want the newest computer and the newest phone, the newest car model and the newest designer shoes. Heck, some people want another dog then another cat then another house then another RV…  Is that you?

Do you find yourself always wanting more than what you have (we’re talking physical things here), or are you satisfied with what you have? Perhaps you feel you have too much and you’d actually like less than what you have.

Please tell us in the poll below and leave a comment when you’re done. We’re curious to hear what you have to say. As always, thanks for voting!

I’m mostly satisfied with what I have. That said I must say I am seldom satisfied with the ice cream I have. I always want more.

Some things I could use less of, like aches and pain. But I want more adventures, love, friends, time, and freedom. While I wouldn’t turn down having more money, yet I am blessed to have enough to meet our needs, which is better than a lot of people.

We continue to downsize as we travel. Multi-purpose items are usually better, but if single purpose we discuss the real need.

Great thoughts Rich. I always want time with my wife and friends. I feel like stuff owns me rather than the other way around. So, I try to keep it to a minimum.

Never have needed/wanted the latest or newest. Most things I keep for a very long time. If it breaks and I cant fix/get repaired, then it gets replaced.

This is how I see it:
More and newer stuff doesn’t really make the RV camping lifestyle more enjoyable. Having the things you NEED, the people and environment are. Keeping things simple and if it’s all paid for just add to the relaxation. When I’m camping, I don’t want to be concerned about much of anything. Why add the aggravation of having more stuff to maintain.
Full time living in an RV is a completely different scenario.

We have the dilemma of wanting “improvements” but at the same time, wanting less “stuff”. I’m amazed when I find something that greatly improves something for us. The ease of use, the great engineering, it turns out to be just the right “thing”. But, then I look around and see that we have just too much stuff….. So I would add a selection on the Poll that said, “Do you navigate wanting more and wanting less”? (he says with humor)

The only thing I want more of is time…. time to enjoy traveling and exploring in my motor home.

Less stuff, more friends and family time, and more time to spend visiting and viewing the country.

It’s no so much having new things as it is having different things. As we have a 37’ fifth wheel now, we are thinking a shorter motor home would be some what easier to travel with. The bathroom would be closer also😃

Small is beautiful! What I really want is more time with people I love and engaging in the communities I love.

Now that I’m finally learning how to enjoy my retirement, “less is more” is definitely my new mantra. It’s going slowly which DW doesn’t always appreciate, but it is ongoing. The way I look at it, the more I liquidate, the more I have to spend on traveling and sightseeing – that’s a win-win!

The peace on contentment of life does not come through things or possessions, it comes when we engage actions to help other people, that desperately need help. True joy is having the ability to help someone, and not wanting anything in return. Just a simple thank you.

We own very little now that we full time in a gasser; however, we admit for dreaming of an <35’ DP! 😉

I collect back issues of my favorite magazine, so in that respect I enjoy getting “more.” However, we are a year into a lifetime project of cleaning up/clearing the farm of fallen trees, repairing buildings, removing or repairing fences, etc.,. So, I also want less, less junk lying around, fewer fallen trees, and, ultimately, less work. Having more new/sharpened chainsaw chains also makes me happy. 🙂

Reached an age where we actually want less stuff. We are now engaged in the Norwegian (or is it Swedish?) practice of “death cleaning”. It’s quite liberating. That said, we do want what we have to be of good quality, so some of the things we gave away have been replaced.

Yes! It is Swedish Death Cleaning, I did it before ever putting our house on the market. We think our college-aged son will thank us someday!

Thank you both for bringing this up. Looking into this now.

Very happy with what I have but I wouldn’t mind a large outbuilding to store my toys out of the weather.

We are blessed and thankful for what we have. We are blessed that should we need something new or replaced we have the resources to do that.

As on a drinking cup I once seen….”I don’t want to be rich, just have everything I want and live comfortably.”
The problem is that “wants” never end.

While it’s fun to look at “bigger and better”, it’s also good to step back and say, “Ahh, all this is completely paid for”. Freeedom!!!
