"You’re born alone and you die alone and this world just drops a bunch of rules on top of you to make you forget those facts. But I never forget. I’m living like there’s no tomorrow, because there isn’t one." — Don Draper
You’re not gonna starve.
You’re not gonna to sleep in the rain.
What is it you’re scared of? A mortgage? A non-existant scoreboard that shows you losing to non-existant competitors your age? You already lost.
401k, IRA, credit score, retirement, mortgage, lexus, granite countertops.
You keep thinking you’ve moved up. You’ve got more. You’re almost “there”.
The reality is, if you’re “moving up” just to move up, you’re doing very little other than ratcheting up obligations. Trapping yourself into a situation where you feel like you don’t control what you do.
The good news… it all goes away the minute you decide it does. You’ve got the keys.
