Living simply costs less

It's easy to be joyful and independent when you have money. They say money doesn't bring happiness, but I'm thinking in our consumer world, it certainly helps.

The thing is we get so focussed on money or the lack of it, that we spend our entire lives consumed by anxiety over having enough.

Money worries drain our life force. So dependent are we on money that the underlying worry is a constant companion.

All manner of strategies to convince myself to shift my focus from money didn't make much difference. I'd still wake up with a clenched jaw and anxiety about how I was going to make ends meet today.
