We boxed it all up and left.
I’ll be the buzzkill or Captain KillJoy on this blog – for the fun! (with a bang (!)), see the other half of the blog – the posts with the witty titles.
The first thing to consider, as an adult, is whether or not the decisions you make are wise. It’s likely that I’m at the point in my life where I’m filling out enough paperwork on a day to day basis that my opinion has been collated rather than formed, but wisdom when you’re 30 seems to be asking yourself a short set of questions when making big (or even medium) life decisions.
The big three are probably:
- Will this improve my financial wellbeing? – Personal Wealth
- Will this improve my health (and happiness) – Exercise and Well-being
- Does this choice (or activity) prevent the reasonable attainment of either of the previous two individually or at the sacrifice of one or the other?
I don’t remember when, but the conversation went like this:
M (or J): “Sweet. We should just say ‘F it’ and hit the road for a year.”
M & J: [uncommitted laughter]
What we did not hear was Life laughing back at us.
And then we started planning it.
The road trip.
So naturally I asked myself the questions:
Will this improve my financial wellbeing? Hahahahaha, no. Are you joking?
Will this improve my health? What? You mean touring breweries and eating at famous restaurants isn’t healthy? Sleeping in random people’s homes and visiting the Grizzly Bear capital of the US?
Does this choice (or activity) prevent the reasonable attainment of either of the previous two individually or at the sacrifice of one or the other? Inexorably so.
Ah, but what about question #4? Will it be fun?
Tenants – check.
