Life is hard no matter if we bust our butts to succeed or if we surrender and take the slothful path.
Essentially it comes down to two choices:
Our attitude will decide which one we pick.
It is a mid life goal to learn how to live simply, so that others may simply live.
This is one of the toughest life lessons to reverse. Everything we see or hear in the media, tells us more is better.
I’m teaching our son that less is more, not more is better.
Assets become liabilities. Seriously.
You get a nice car and then you worry about it being damaged or stolen. We live where most people drive upscale vehicles.
I drive a 20-year old car and love that it starts every time the key turns. Over a year ago, it was damaged when I was a victim of road rage. I’m thankful to be alive.
Never fixed that front fender, a daily reminder of what’s important.
The joy of doing without is something I need help on everyday anyway.
