It has taken me years to figure out that consumption is not the road to happiness. I use to think that my job was who I was and my stuff described my story. I have figured out this is not the case at all. I now do a job that makes me happy and covers most of my bills. And I am slowly getting rid of my excess consumption. As has been said to me “Don’t keep up with, the Jones they are going broke”.
I married an amazing girl who right from the get go knew that it is not a job or stuff that makes for a happy life. It has taken me years longer to come to the same conclusions. Most of all it is about coming up with solutions to a better world that makes the difference. Please take the time to watch this video. If wont solve all our problems but it does highlight that we are the solutions to our problems.
