Learning to live with less, is really not a bad thing at all. It’s in fact, healthy I would say. Have you ever think when is enough and how much is enough? Life is not all about materialism. And, since when did we grow up and becoming so materialistic? Bigger car, a much bigger house, then a mansion, then more and more and more. But, when will we get satisfied?
Materialistic is no longer a word applying to those people called ‘gold-digger’. But, it applies to all those everyday people that surrounds you and me. So, learn to love life simple pleasure. I know I did. I was tired of metropolitan lifestyle. I am tired on getting bills, bills, bills and bills. I am tired of sales rep chasing me around. to buy this and that. I’m tired of dateline to pay for mortgages, car, and all never-ending payment dateline. I’m tired of asking when will be my next pay rise so I can buy more and pay more.I’m tired of unnecessary heart ache.
And, having watched people around me wanting bigger and the latest by working themselves to death to pay for it is just so sad. I have even heard of mum’s friend trying to finance their son’s extravagant wedding that they have to refinance their home to do so. Oh..god!…Is bigger and lavish really that important? I thought what’s most important in life is long-term happiness not short-term happiness.
Truthfully, after learning to want less. I tend to learn to live my life more and I intend to keep it that way.
I guess it’s just my 2-cents.
Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want. ~Margaret Young
