Expensive vs. Cheap

This is the way I see it from my point of view. If you are going to get something and you know you don’t have the money to get the expensive version of the item you want are you going to get a cheaper version of the item? Or are you gonna wait until you have the money to get the expensive item? Next question would be to me is the expensive item a better quality than the cheaper item? If the answer is yes, then of course I am gonna wait til I have the money to get the expensive quality item. I think if you get the cheaper item you will end up paying for it again and again.  I am a firm believer and always have been for the most part, I’ll repeat for the most part that one most certainly gets what they pay for.  The other question to ask is the item someone wants a luxury item or a not so luxury item?Well for me I do love luxury!  And I  do like the finer things in life! Another question to ask is it comfortable? Well, for me and especially now it has got to be comfortable!  Whether it be comfortable living, wearing or riding. Those three are a must for me! I certainly want to be comfortable living in a nice environment, my clothes have to fit comfortable, especially not tight and when I am taking trips or buzzing around town I like to be comfortable driving. Let’s face it not all can enjoy such luxuries in life. Then what is one to do? Is there somethings that need to be changed? Or are you content with the life you are living? I guess it boils down to the individual and what he or she wants out of life. For me I do like the finer things in life as I said before and if I can get them I most certainly will without a doubt. If I can’t get them I will somehow, someway find a way. God in my belief does not want us to live poor. God gives us a way, it is a matter of  the individual finding the way and taking it. I am blessed that I have retired and enjoy a pension and have great health care, I owe it all to God. But you know the funny thing, I want more and I am figuring or trying to figure how I can get it. I know I can’t get it with what I am doing now so I got to make a change meaning maybe finding a new job one that will help me in attaining the finer things in life. Yes, I want a beach house one that I can go to anytime I want, yes I want a ranch or farm home where I can have horses and other animals. Will I get it now or do I wait until I can afford those things. As it stands now I wait until I can afford them cause the question is when can I afford them? Well, I gotta find another JOB it looks like or win the lottery cause with my pension it is not happening and I don’t want that to be an option. Now, will those plans change, well maybe but as it stands now they are a part of the plan. I suppose what it is that I am wanting to get across to my readers is do you want Cheap stuff or expensive stuff? Quantity or Quality? Nice or not so Nice? Dreams or no Dreams? My thoughts, have the best because you deserve the best so get the expensive stuff it is going to probably last longer anyway and you won’t have to end up buying it twice or at least for a long time and remember to ask is it comfortable? Cause not all expensive items are comfortable. Have a nice home one with little to no maintenance and keep it up so that it will always be maintained just like your car. Get the vacation home you want and enjoy time relaxing to get out of the hustle, bustle life that you live day-to-day to make ends meet. Most importantly don’t stress in getting the finer things in life, if there is a will there is a way,  first of all have the WILL  then just find the way and if one gets lost along the way then figure another route if one can not find a way then maybe it was that they really did not want the finer things in life to begin with. This is Jerry signing out for now, dream big, plan for it and have a great and enjoyable life because you can.
