“Everything you commit to will have weight. It may be the emotional weight of owning something, it may be the weight of duties you take one, or the weight of relationships, especially if you’re the one holding the relationship up. Then there’s the financial weight you take on. Every financial commitment will probably force you into tick-tock*, because that’s mostly where the money is. You may have to go into tick-tock from time to time anyway, but you don’t want to be buried in so deep it drives you crazy. In my view, it’s better to live a humble, happy life, traveling and experiencing the world, than to own it. What’s the point of lots of stuff that you have to polish, insure, and worry over?”
Stuart Wilde, in “Whispering Winds of Change”
*Tick-tock, as Stuart refers to it, is more commonly known as the “work-a-day world”
