I don’t know if you caught it, but in our last net worth update I slipped in something pretty nonchalantly that really should have been more chalant 😉
We’ll see if we reach [a million dollars] before the downturn, but either way it really doesn’t matter as it’s not the *amount* that counts, but the *lifestyle* it gives you.
It took me a good 6 or 7 years to finally come to this realization, but when you figure out that this is the whole point of chasing all that money, it really puts things in better perspective. Especially when you realize that there are parts to your lifestyle you can start implementing RIGHT NOW to improve it that doesn’t even cost a cent! (Walks, naps, Adventure Tuesdays! (see below))
I think we get so caught up in wanting more all the time that we don’t step back to see the overall picture.
