When I was younger going without seemed just darn cruel. I couldn't understand why I couldn't have something that I wanted. I couldn't wrap my itty bitty mind around the reason why my grandma denied me the luxury of cable.
If my grandmother were still living we could have a good laugh at the fact that I persuaded my husband to get rid of the cable. Back then I thought that all the cool kids got to go home from school and watch videos while I had to go home and enjoy my share of ETV, Power Rangers, and Guiding Light.
Today I could care less about the cable box. I could really care less about the $100 a month that we were paying either. See I have grown up and learned that my life definitely does not revolve around that box. Even better if I want to watch videos they made this super new cool invention called YouTube that allows me to watch whatever freakin videos I want!
So I have made peace with sacrificing little things because I truly have all I need. Getting creative and using a Roku box with streaming HuluPlus and Netflix saves us $84 a month!
So what do you have your sweaty knuckles gripped around? I'm pretty sure you can make peace with not having it anymore, don't you think?
