Oh.. how I relate to this!
I live simply too. It has allowed freedoms that I wouldn’t have otherwise had.
I find it challenging to indulge. I still use the wooden packing crates I found as furniture when I first moved out of home. Sentimental and not seeing a need for bigger better more.
The treats I indulge in are travel (budget kind…Leading to real and raw experiences!) and education… I feel like they are investments even if the “interest” isn’t clearly linked to the financial kind.
I know I have a fear of excess. A fear of what too much can do to someone. Amplification of the human underneath and cycling the energy in a monetary form are intellectual premises I am still learning to grasp and apply. Happy money they say. Happy to spend, happy to receive.
Perhaps, like you say, there is that underlying worthiness bubbling beneath the surface.
Thanks for sharing.
A share that has sparked my own moment of reflection too. Once again!
Thank you for being you.
