You said it – do it while you can. The thing is – everyone that we meet who’s older than us says, “Wow, I wish I had done that.” Sure, there are risks and rewards that come with this.
Here are some key points:
1) First, we will still work. We just won’t need as much money because we won’t have as much stuff. Which means we won’t work as much. We’ll be free to take on interesting jobs because we like the work rather than need the money and we’ll be free to say no to jobs that require us to do something we don’t like or miss out on time together.
2) We’ll have a very low cost of living, so money we do make can go towards a safety net.
3) Even with some planning, everything has a risk. We are choosing not to live in the “what ifs”
Some things are inevitable:
- we will get old,
- our health eventually will decline,
- we will die
Some things are only granted if we choose them now:
- we will live life to the fullest as we age,
- we’re more likely to be healthier if we are mentally & physically well now,
- we don’t have a choice if we die but we do have a choice if we live
Our motto: Worry less of what might happen tomorrow & more of what is not happening today.
