Freedom to Live A Desired Lifestyle
Post written by Olive Dove
Nothing is better than having freedom to do things we like while affording a desired lifestyle. How much you make is irrelevant when you have a yoke over your shoulder.
As we choose to eat healthy organic foods and free range chicken, should we rethink the way we work? Most of us work in cubicles in skyscrapers in timed schedules and rigid bureaucracy. It’s an endless cycle of rate race. It’s like factory farming that churns out mass production that often overlook work conditions and health of the workers. So most of us get in and out of the system day in, day out so that we can afford pricey organic foods, posh cars and expensive houses. We heal exhausted mind and body with occasional vacations at five-star resorts where staff members sport insincere smiles.
We want and need the money to afford desired lifestyle. But losing freedom to work in an undesired job in order to afford a desired lifestyle is a burden. When life loses freedom and happiness, it’s not a life worth living. It’s a balancing act that required us to rethink what we want and how to achieve it in a way that preserve dignity, joy and freedom.
The most important question is that can most of us forego undesired highly paid jobs in exchange for a simpler but happier lifestyle? Forget about keeping up with the Joneses if you opt for simple living that costs very little but promises abundant of happiness.
