Life will be a lot cheaper when you’re dead.
Pay the taxes. Anticipate and accept the hidden costs. Understand that you truly own very little. Most of what you have is borrowed, so don’t overly invest yourself in hoarding it. Once you’ve sincerely thought over the hidden costs, decide if you truly need this thing, person, or job to be happy.
Above all else, be thankful for the things and the people who pass in and out of your life. Gratitude has the power to reframe everything.
