When I first thought about what things I wouldn’t be able to live without, the items that instantly came to mind are my daily “essentials” – things that I like having, but don’t actually need. Then I thought about the things that actually matter – necessities, and the things that I love the most. #firstworldproblems
I don’t know why this is.
Haha! Our brains work in interesting ways, non?
So, in no particular order, I have listed the five things that I honestly believe I couldn’t go a day without. 🙂
Five Things I Can’t Live Without
1. My phone.
Ugh, now I look like a typical teenager, don’t I? Haha! But it’s not for the reasons you think. I don’t “need” it to message all my besties, or stay up late texting bae; I take all my photos with it, use the Memrise and Plant Nanny apps, bring up recipes to read while I bake, play videos for my little sister while we’re away from home, edit blog posts and respond to comments, and so much more.
2. My Bible.
Sure, I could look up certain verses and passages if I needed to on a computer or my phone, but just like holding a book in person provides a much different experience than simply reading the words, I feel the same way about my Bible. I love seeing all of the places I’ve underlined and added notes to, and the translation of mine (AMPC) is my absolute favorite, even though it’s not a commonly-read one.
I do all of my blog post formatting (text size/color, pictures, proofreading, etc) and anything else blog-related that I can’t do from my phone on a laptop! Most drafts start on my phone, then get finished on my mom’s laptop.
4. My library card.
My mom thought of this one; my beloved library card is my free ticket to the world of books. The Georgia Pines Library System is my best friend. ❤
5. Water bottle.
My mom also came up with this one (I was at a loss of what my favorite things are). My faithful water bottle has always been there for me, and is always by my side. I’m not always thirsty, or something, but I do like to stay hydrated – *takes a drink from the water bottle nearest to me* – whether I need a drink of water, or not.
Haha, so that’s it for today’s post! Now you know a little bit more about my priorities and what I love to have by my side every single day. How about you?
