I live above my means. Way above.
I eat and throw away more food than I need each day. I spend more money than I need to each day. I think of myself more than I need to each day. I worry about my future (and other things) more than I want to each day. It’s all too much.
Friends in Morocco tell me that as long as they have enough to get by each day, that’s all they need. These friends also take care of others, helping and giving as they can. And that ends up being a lot and often. It inspires me.
I spin and toil each day worrying about what to do next, how to live my dream, how to make more money, how to work harder to accomplish the goals set for me by others. It drains me.
I already have more than the majority of the rest of the world. How much more do I really need?
I want to live below my means. I want to live a life with less, with fewer, with smaller. A life focusing on today, on others, and a life of enough.
