How Priorities Reflect Character

"I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck."
- Emma Goldman

Our priorities are a reflection of our character.  It signifies what we consider important and insignificant.  Not all people have the same priorities.  What I consider most important may not be as much of a priority for other people. 

Wanting the latest fashionable clothes, a new car with top of the line luxurious yet unnecessary gadgets, or having the newest electronic toys would make me materialistic if I valued all that over my friends and family.  It would be nice to have the nicer comforts of life, but to me, it is nothing compared to my loved ones.

Some things are more important than others.  I agree with Emma Goldman.  Instead of diamonds on my neck (wrists or teeth), I'd rather have roses on my table that I can stop, smell, and think to myself, "Isn't life awesome?"
