May Photo A Day : Day 14 : Need

Day 14 prompt for "May Photo A Day Challenge : A challenge that will change your life" is 'Need'.

There are quite a few things that qualify as needs. As per Maslow's hierarchy of needs, needs are divided in 5 categories. 

·         Physiological – food, water, sleep, sex
·         Safety – job security, abiding the law, stability
·         Love/belonging – affection, relationships –personal & professional
·         Esteem – respect, recognition, confidence
·         Self-actualisation – self-fulfillment

So, a need can fall in any of the five. As per this, we first address the needs at the bottom of the pyramid and make our way up. Because, once your basic needs are taken care of, you look at other things that you may like to have.

Going by the theory, there are many needs I need to address. However, one that stands out immediately is the need for water. For me, water is one thing I cannot live without. I need to carry it with me always. I get irritable when I haven't had a drop in a bit of a time. I think if I look at this need, it makes me happy and I never ever take it for granted.


If you care to know why so many bottles, well blue is my office bottle, orange stays at home and the tumbler goes to gym with me. What to do? I also need colors in my life!
