I don’t think I could be much less needy if I tried.
It just really doesn’t take much at all to keep me happy.
Perhaps it’s the environment that I grew up in that had the most effect on me when it comes to not needing much. Really, all I want each day when it comes to comfort is quality heating and air. My parents were sort of hippies and we lived really simply. Honestly, it was a great way to grow up. We grew most of our own food, had animals and there was always something to do together. I think the being together part was awesome. But our house had a wood stove for heating and I think we ended up trading for a window air conditioning unit at some point. While I don’t live quite like my parents did, I carry a lot of that spirit with me. I firmly believe in protecting resources and that’s true when it comes to heating and cooling. Our HVAC unit has the latest in HVAC technology for residential HVAC. And the SEER rating is just about the highest one can find so it’s the most efficient on the market. I don’t need new cars or fancy clothes. Buying stuff is not something that I need to do for fun or fulfillment. Actually, I buy what I need and spend the rest of the money on my family. Still, when I come home at the end of the day, I do need to enjoy that wonderful heating and cooling I get when I walk through the door. As long as I can count on my HVAC equipment to provide the quality heating and air I need, I’ll be just fine.
