  1. Great post and absolutely true to my experience. Once I put my kid through college, I was done with the rat race. I stepped out of that life, never looked back, and am very content without the money or pressure.

    1. I would have loved to know more about your insightful and rich experiences. I am glad you could step out of the race and make the transition. Life is much better without the unnecessary stress and anxiety anyway.

  2. I love this topic! I was just reading about Simple Living, and even before I read this text, I wanted to live in an airstream or just a small house, and have a job that I enjoyed. I think people get so stuck on the idea of making a lot of money, they don’t think of what it’ll cost them. Of course there is still a balance, but I see people who live similarly to this anecdote, and they don’t seem happy at all.

    1. I agree, There are more people than we can imagine stuck in this rut. Balance is certainly the key. Too much of anything is good for nothing. I myself want to own a small house and have an enjoyable job. I hope you get what you want. Best wishes to you.

  3. back in the eighties I was making great money as a Wellsite Geologist. If I had stayed I’m sure I’d be a millionaire by now but not as happy.Money is the ultimate drug that affects all who even come close to it! What one needs to find is their “Goldiloks Zone”………not too much & not too little for them to be “happy”.
    Too little & too much of everything one experiences from cradle to grave is bad for you.
    You take who you are & leave everything you have behind.
    You always have such interesting topics Lovey!

    1. “You take who you are & leave everything you have behind.” You say some beautiful yet practical things. I am sure you would have made a kickass millionaire too. I wish you only the best and more. Thank you for always leaving the words of encouragement for my creations.

We would love to hear your thoughts! Tell us what you think!
