For a while now I have been pondering about this: If you rid yourself of all your worldly posessions would you sleep calmer at night?
Ok I admit I am a material girl. I don't get a kick out of camping. I prefer a hotel stay over a camping trip anytime (that's not to say that I don't like camping. I've been on great trips but I like it a tad more luxurious)===THIS IS HER HUBBY: THIS ASWOME GIRL HAS BEEN TAKEN AND WON´T BE RELEASED UNTIL I GET A THOUSAND KISSES!! END OF THE MESSAGE ===I enjoy a comfy bed and a hot shower and our car and cable tv and my Vanity Fair subscription and our three computers and our two cats etc. You get the picture.
Now it isn't like I can't leave the house because I might get robbed or thiefs will break into our appartment and steal something precious. Although that is a very scary thought. What I mean is the more we have and the more we enjoy certain luxuries the more I am afraid that there will come a time we might lose one or all of these things. So I am pondering should I play it safe and save for a rainy day ( we are already doing that, what I mean is more like a big fat emergency cushion) or should I just enjoy life? And should there be times in which we are not as well off will we just cut back or will I lose my head over not having my luxuries? Should I cut back now and live in fear of what "might" happen?
It is really not that easy. How do you deal with it? Do you live on the edge with the budget stretched to the max every month or do you cut back on luxuries and save for a rainy day? Please help me out here.
