Growing up, our parents gave us what we need plus a little extra. They taught us contentment and gratitude for what is there. We could ask for more, sure, but we grew up learning to live within our means, that we didn't have to get everything we wanted. I don't have any recollection of scarcity, we always got by. As a grown up, I appreciate my parents more, because they instilled in me this firm belief that a simple life is enough, I don't need new expensive flashy things every now and again, I just need functional dependable everyday stuff.
