Oh hello! Come in and have a breakfast wrap.

Today: Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.

Can I be honest? I’m a little bored with the 30 days of truth. I thought it would be more fun. But, in the interest of changing my habit of not following through with things, I will press on.

Today’s topic is stupid, IMO. We can all live without something. Whatever it is. Especially the “someone” you can’t live without. Yeah, you’d be sad, but you won’t die. You’d be devastated, but you won’t die. You’re life may never be the same, but you won’t die. If the Wonder Twins were taken away from me, permanently or temporarily, I would be sad. Despondent even. But I won’t die.

Maybe I’m not going deeply enough. Maybe I need to get more philosophical about this. Maybe I’m over thinking it.

Can I live without a fulfilling job? Yes. I do it every day.

Can I live without my cell phone? It would be a hassle, but yes. I could.

I can’t live without food. But that is too simplistic. As is living without air and water. I could live without chocolate. Or alcohol. Or coffee. Or more “stuff”. I have enough stuff.

I guess today’s topic is another “fail” as far as digging deep for a profound answer. But, my reality tells me that I won’t die because I’m deprived of something other than the basics.

Wait. Maybe *that* is the point of today’s question! Maybe it is designed to make you realize that you don’t need external “things” to be happy. You don’t need a partner to complete you. You are enough as you are. A partner is a wonderful addition, but won’t make you happy, in and of themself.  A new pair of shoes, while fabulous, won’t make you smarter or better or funnier or more loveable.

Jeepers. Did I just have a breakthrough??

Tomorrow: Someone or something you definitely could live without.
