How much is enough?
How much money, how many clothing items, shoes, cars and investments do you need? Where do you draw the line?
I’ve often wondered why it was we accumulated so many things? Is it just marketing, power, status? Are we being sold a lie, are we that gullible?
Are we looking for comfort in ‘things’, some kind of re-assurance?
I’m not a psychologist so I won’t assume I have the hard facts to answer all those questions, but I do think that a life lived with purpose, probably doesn’t need so many things.
Some may associate purpose with fame and fortune, others perhaps with family and friends.
But if we were to dig a littler deeper, how then do we get to the bottom of what it is that truly drives us?
Why are we here, what are we trying to accomplish and why?
Is it only purely survival, to try and live as long as we can and that’s it, for no reason, or is there more to it?
