- Name brand of clothing
As long as it is comfortable and fits well I don’t care.
- The price of the car
My current car the Honda City is over eight years old and it serves me well , does the work of transportation when I need.
- Square footage of home
A smaller home is easier to maintain, I am not impressed with bigger homes.
Our current home that is around 1000 sq ft with a space for my WFH that is sufficient.
- Amount of money in the bank account
Nothing wrong with money , it is exchange for Value you bring to the world, it lets you live life on your own terms .
But beyond a point it only matters if you can help others or what good you can do in the community with what you earn.
The lockdowns have demonstrated how little we need to live.
- Gadgets we use
I do buy gadgets but as long as they serve my work beyond that I am not interested In buying the latest shiny object that is out there.
- Social media likes
People put out pictures of their vacations or food they eat , tell their best stories.
But I know they are only part of the story not the whole story.
I was not always like this , I have changed over time .
I understood that what truly matters is health , family , friends and freedom.
We deeply yearn for ‘Freedom’ to live life on our own terms but we start imitating the culture.
It is not a restricted lifestyle rather it is focusing on what truly matters in life.
I am sure the pandemic has been a wake up call for us to reflect on what is truly important.
Do you agree ?
P.S- ( Need to yet work on the nutrition bit )
