Shamelessly bumping your thread...hoping others will join us here.
You sound like someone I would have as a friend (most of my girlfriends have/had horses too, but that's not the only reason)! I just don't understand
selfishness and greed. Even as a small child (an only child)...I would give/share my toys/clothes with friends...it just felt right.
After escaping an abusive marriage....I left with my clothes and very few personal belongings. Today I consider myself a 'minimalist'....because I've
truly learned what is important, and it ain't STUFF!
My daughters call me a 'hippy chick' (meant with love)...and I wouldn't want to be a 'material girl' ever.
Your heart is the right place.
I sometimes get called 'hippy chick' lol.
I lost everything when I lost my job, home, car, standard of living etc. I learned to live without 'stuff' and 'things' for years because I couldn't
afford them. Nowdays it's a way of life for me, I get by on a tiny amount and my family think I must be miserable because I never have any spare
money, but it really doesn't bother me one bit.
I am happy that I am able-bodied, I have sisters, brother, cousins, aunt & uncles, nieces and nephews, I have friends, and I have my dogs, I have my
uncomplicated, simple life. All these are my important 'things', all are precious and priceless, and all cost absolutely nothing. I was too busy to
appreciate them before I lost my job, because it was more important for me to flog myself to death in the rat-race so I could pay for all the 'stuff'
I really didn't need.
Money, and the frantic rat-race/treadmill we have to endure in order to procure it, distracts us from appreciating the priceless things in life which
I realised that since losing everything, my cup is far from empty - it is overflowing.
