If you get fewer magazines, you'll have an emptier magazine rack.
If your children get older, you then only own older kid toys.
If you have less time, you make simpler meals.
If your children are having trouble getting everything done, you cut back on their activities.
If you find you are too tired, you just sleep more.
If your clothes don't fit, you just throw them out and buy new clothes.
If you aren't getting jobs in your field, you simply change your field.
If you can't work out coffee dates with your friends, you get new, more available friends.
Had you going, didn't I? Sometimes what might appear to be reality just
isn't. Or shouldn't be. It's important to have a reality check once in a
while--your magazine rack, your children, and your friends will thank
you for it.
