Thank you for your comments and for the questions you’ve suggested. I think we can all agree that most of us need to earn some money to keep life rolling on, but you highlight a number of questions that most don’t ask themselves, or only do so when it’s in effect far too late to do much about addressing them. We become entrenched in life, reliant upon the money, chasing more, and basically hating the day-to-day process.

What I’ve been keen to emphasize in this piece (having learned it for myself) is that I think we do have a choice to tweak, to alter and make small changes to our daily lives (and how we feel about them) so as to ensure that we can seek to enjoy each day. That, in my opinion must be the goal rather than deferring all enjoyment and satisfaction until some unknown point in the distant future.

Thanks again for sharing your thoughts!
