Stuff ties you down. The new car, the big house … it all cost life hours and then you have to protect it. It’s a trap.
We divested 4 years ago. We gave away almost everything. We called the kids and said, “Anything you were going to get when we die, you’re getting now.” We held the mother of all garage sales. We became proficient on eBay. The folks at our local Goodwill hailed us by name.
We’re paring down again. Our plan is to move into the Airstream and travel the country.
No stuff in the world can rival the freedom of doing what you want, when you want, going where you want, for as long as you want. Our home will be wherever we like the view. When international wanderlust hits, we’ll just park the Airstream and hop on a plane to … well, sky’s the limit.
